Some 50 nationalists on Sunday disrupted a news conference in Yangon which was organized by a group of Buddhist monks who have been pressing the government to take action against U Wirathu, the Anadolu Agency reported on 25 February.
The nationalists including 20 monks barged into an apartment in Kyauktada Township where members of the Anti-False Buddhist Doctrine Committee were scheduled to meet journalists.
The committee was formed last April.
