Submission + - Satellite images used to monitor Burmese junta

BurmesePython writes: Human rights groups are using high-resolution satellites images to reveal the activities of Burma's junta as it gets tough with pro-democracy protesters. Apparently "it should be easy to spot groups of monks because of their distinctive maroon robes". Like previous efforts to use satellites to monitor the humanitarian crisis in Darfur [], the hope is it will prod the UN and other international actors into putting pressure on the Burmese rulers.
