"Myanmar's reformist government ordered more than 450 prisoners freed Thursday in an amnesty apparently intended as a goodwill gesture ahead of a historic visit by President Barack Obama next week. It was not clear whether any political prisoners will be among those released, but past amnesties have included both prisoners of conscience and common criminals." (11/14/12)
