Ngwe Kyar Yan monastery in South Okkalapa was raided in the middle of the night on 27th September 2007. Hundreds of monks were arrested and the monastery was ransacked by the Burmese authorities. The sign to the monastery was removed in an attempt by the regime to remind the public that all monasteries would be closed if they harboured any activists.
