Myanmar has reacted angrily to a Time magazine cover story on a prominent radical monk accused of fuelling anti-Muslim violence, accompanied by the headline 'The Face of Buddhist Terror'. The Time report 'creates a misunderstanding of Buddhism which has existed for thousands of years and is the religion of the majority of our citizens,' said a statement posted on the presidential office website late on June 23.
