Hundreds of people marched Wednesday to protest steep increases in fuel prices, taking their challenge to Myanmar's military junta to the streets for a second time this week despite the arrest of 13 democracy activists who organized the rally. The march broke up after government supporters hit some of the 300 protesters with sticks and took away eight of the marchers, witnesses and participants said. The eight later were freed unharmed.
