Buddhists in Myanmar protest OIC's visit
Myanmar Buddhist Monks carry religious flags as they march to protest against the upcoming visit of a delegation of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to Myanmar Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2013, in Yangon, Myanmar. Hundreds of Buddhists marched through the streets of Myanmar's biggest city to protest an upcoming visit by a high-level delegation from the world's biggest Islamic political bloc, a grouping of 57 Islamic countries. More than 240 people have been killed and 240,000 others forced to flee their homes, many of them members of Myanmar's minority Rohingya Muslim community. The OIC's secretary general and seven foreign ministers will travel Thursday to Myanmar's western Rakhine state to visit camps for displaced Rohingya. (AP Photo/Khin Maung Win)
