The United States announced Thursday that it was imposing economic sanctions against senior officials in the government of Myanmar in the wake of anti-government protests in the country. The Treasury Department announced that it was imposing economic sanctions against 14 senior officials of the government of Myanmar, also known as Burma. Officials said the action was being taken after the decision by President George W. Bush to tighten US sanctions against the military regime in the country. "The president has made it clear that we will not stand by as the regime tries to silence the voices of the Burmese people through repression and intimidation," said Adam Szubin, director of Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control.
