A girl sits on the steps on the top of Mandalay hill in front of a statue of the Buddha in Mandalay on September 28, 2009. Myanmar marks the two-year anniversary of the ruling junta's violent crackdown on Buddhist monks who led mass street protests. At least 31 people were killed in the 2007 crackdown which led to stepped up Western sanctions on military-run Myanmar. AFP PHOTO / EDISON (Photo credit should read EDISON/AFP/Getty Images)
