Some reports on Guardian News blog that the Burmese military are divided: "4.15pm - The Irrawaddy is suggesting that the army disquiet about how to handle the protests goes right to the top. Unconfirmed reports say there are unusual troop movements underway in Rangoon, amid reports that Snr-Gen Than Shwe, the junta's chief, and Vice Snr-Gen Maung Aye, his second in command and the commander in chief of the army, have disagreed over the response to the recent demonstrations. Maung Aye is planning to meet with Aung San Suu Kyi and is disturbed by the bloody crackdown, diplomatic sources have told the Irrawaddy. It adds that Suu Kyi has been taken to Yemon Military Camp on the outskirts of Rangoon."

Also, a 21.03 ( local time) report on Cbox say the cadets wanted to come to Mandalay to stand by the monks and the people but had their weapons confiscated. [Hat tip again to Nigel Rogers]
