Myanmar protesters burn Chinese flag

Demonstrators in Yangon set Chinese flags on fire in opposition to China's stance at a U.N. Security Council session held last week.

The global peace body has so far issued two statements expressing concern and condemning violence against protesters, but dropped language condemning the army takeover as a coup and threatening possible further action due to opposition by China, Russia, India, and Vietnam.

China's U.N. ambassador Zhang Jun told the session that China was working with "all parties" in Myanmar to reduce tensions.
