U2 BANNED IN BURMA
<br>
<br>U2's latest album 'All That You Can't Leave Behind' has been banned in Burma, because its pays tribute to the country's imprisoned pro-democracy leader, dotmusic can exclusively reveal.
<br>
<br>The track 'Walk On' is dedicated to Aung San Kyi, who was recently placed under house arrest by the government, alongside her National League colleagues.
<br>
<br>The band's official website details the country's human rights record, which they report is one of the worst in the world.
<br>
<br>They quote: Around 8 million men, women and children are in forced labour each year. There is an 'ethnic cleansing campaign' against half a million Shan, Karen and Karenni people. There are more child soldiers than any other country in the world. There are more than 1500 political prisoners.
<br>
<br>A spokeswoman for the band confirmed the news, but said the band no comment at this stage.
<br>
<br>U2 will release a new single 'Stuck In A Moment That You Can't Get Out Of' in January 2001.
