PORTRAITS: New numerology of hate grows in Myanmar - Article Photos 13/22

Buddhist monk Wirathu, right, speaks during an interview at Ma Soe Yein monastery in Mandalay, Myanmar on March 27, 2013. Wirathu and others insist "969," a campaign named after the digits enumerating virtues of the Lord Buddha, is merely a peaceful movement to strengthen Buddhism and that it is being wrongly blamed for inciting religious violence that rolled through central Myanmar in March. Mobs, including monks, led a 10-day streak of anti-Muslim riots that left over 40 dead as police stood idly by. (AP Photo/Gemunu Amarasinghe)
