The UN Sees Improvement in Myanmar

The United Nations say its logistical operations in cyclone hit Myanmar have improved over the last week. Speaking in Bangkok, a UN Spokesperson emphasised all the survivors in the region could be reached if the junta granted greater access to foreign experts. An estimated 133,000 are either dead or missing and nearly 2.4 million people have been left homeless by the cyclone, which hit the country more than three weeks ago.
