PYIN MA BIN , MYANMAR - JUNE 11: An elderly Burmese woman rests on large teak logs marked for export in a government-run lumberyard June 11, 2003 in Pyin Ma Bin, Myanmar. Teak wood is common in Myanmar and is in high demand in Japan and most of Asia. With the exception of humanitarian assistance, Western countries have maintained an embargo on foreign aid to Myanmar since the military's bloody crackdown on democracy protest in 1988. This continues to be a blow to the country's struggling market economy causing widespread poverty. Opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, remains in 'protective custody' after a clash on May 30, 2003 between supporters and a pro-government group last week. (Photo by Paula Bronstein/Getty Images)
