Myanmar youth hungry for change

Strained ties with the military government could keep away up to 50 million new voters from Sunday's vote.

    Myanmar's military government has been keeping a close eye on the nation's youth as the country prepares for its first democratic election in 20 years.

    While some young people have found new ways to express themselves, most have little hope of change.

    There are also concerns that a strained relationship with the military government would keep away up to 50 million new voters from Sunday's polls.
