Myanmar protests demand military loosen grip on politics

Protesters in Myanmar called for the military to loosen its grip on politics Wednesday, as tensions mount over the country's army-drafted constitution ahead of national elections next year. The 2008 charter, enacted by the ruling junta after decades of repressive army rule, bars embattled civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi from the presidency and forces her to share power with the generals.
