The central Burmese town of Meikhtila declared a curfew for a second night on Thursday after clashes killed 10 people, including a Buddhist monk, and injured at least 20, authorities said. Riots erupted in Meikhtila, 540 km (336 miles) north of Rangoon, on Wednesday after an argument between a Buddhist couple and the Muslim owners of a gold shop escalated.
