Meanwhile, Chinese bloggers cook up conspiracies about the earthquake.

Meanwhile, in Burma aid workers are still not let in. None really knows what’s going on. Red cross reported the death toll here could reach 127 990. It’s impossible to get a grips of these numbers.
How two countries can handle a catastrophe so differently. The Burmese leaders have more to loose in letting in foreign journalists, who also might critizise the political regime, causing unrest. Why they don’t let aid workers in though, that remains a mystery. Lars Boström har en teori om varför.
