BANGKOK -- Myanmar has already experienced more deaths than in the crackdown on pro-democracy protests in 2007 that were largely led by monks.

According to the United Nations, 38 people were killed on Wednesday, the bloodiest day since the Feb. 1 coup, as Myanmar's military and police continue with a hardline stance, oblivious to calls for restraint from other countries.
