New cyclone threatens Burma

Posted by African Press International on May 15, 2008

A second cyclone was forming Wednesday near Burma, less than two weeks after it was devastated by a killer storm. The United Nations’ weather center was tracking a nascent tropical storm that is likely to become a cyclone, said Amanda Pitt, the spokeswoman of the world body’s humanitarian relief program, in Bangkok, Thailand. A new cyclone would further jeopardize the people who survived Cyclone Nargis on May 3 and the efforts to distribute aid for them. UN officials, meanwhile, were considering use of force in getting past Burma’s ruling military junta, which has blocked foreign attempts to send in food, supplies and medical aid to its people.
