Irrawaddy squats bulldozed ahead of royal visit

Squatters living on the bank of the Irrawaddy river in Mandalay Division say their makeshift homes were demolished ahead of a visit to the area by the Norwegian Royals.

King Harald and Queen Sonya will sail down the stretch of river towards the ancient temple complex of Bagan on Friday.

They say they had no warning before they saw their squats bulldozed.
