U.S. Navy Ships to Leave Myanmar Without Delivering Aid

Four U.S. Navy ships will leave the Myanmar coast Thursday, after failing to receive permission from the Burmese government to unload aid supplies for survivors of Cyclone Nargis, including much-needed helicopters to transport food and other aid.

U.N. officials on Wednesday urged the Myanmar government to allow aid workers to distribute relief goods throughout the country, following a cyclone that could result in the deaths of 100,000 people as conditions worsen, a U.S. diplomat said.
