"Burma on Tuesday announced amnesty for 6,359 prisoners, a group expected to include hundreds of political prisoners whose release would be a dramatic sign of opening after nearly 50 years of autocratic rule. ... State-controlled Burmese media said the releases of inmates would begin Wednesday, a Buddhist religious holiday." (10/11/11)
