Myanmar protesters mark birthday of Che Guevara

A video obtained by Reuters showed some activists holding portraits of Che Guevara, as they marched on a street as part of protests held on Monday to coincide with the birthday of the Latin American revolutionary who became an international icon after his death.

The trial of Myanmar's ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi was also set to start on Monday, as the junta that overthrew her elected government rejected criticism by the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights over its use of deadly force against protesters.

Myanmar's security forces have killed at least 862 people during their crackdown on protests since the coup, according to the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners, an activist group, though the junta disputes the number.
