There is a heavy military presence on the streets of Burma's main city, Rangoon, following recent protests. (The following pictures were taken on Saturday.)
The military government has progressively sent in reinforcements to quash the pro-democracy demonstrations.
The number of protesters is well down as the military crackdown begins to bite.
Buddhist monks, once in the vanguard of the protests, have been sidelined by large-scale arrests.
Roadblocks across the city appear to have effectively curtailed mass gatherings.
State TV has been broadcasting statements condemning leaders of the opposition.
