Compiled From Wire Services

Burma’s military rulers have stepped up their fight against what they consider “decadent alien culture.”

Some Burmese who are ignoring the government’s warnings against such behavior face severe action, the official newspaper, New Light of Myanmar, said Saturday.

It did not say what penalties they face.
