BANGKOK, Thailand – In a continuing campaign of arrests in Myanmar, the authorities have caught their most-wanted man, a former student leader who helped organize recent protests, Amnesty International said Saturday. The organizer, U Htay Kywe, 39, was the last remaining leader of a group called the 88 Generation Students Group, which had led protests against a fuel price increase in mid-August that grew into huge demonstrations against the military junta. Two other members of the group were also arrested, as well as another dissident, according to Amnesty, a London-based human rights group. Although the report could not be independently verified, members of Burmese exile groups in Thailand said they believed it to be true. One of the people reported to have been arrested is Mie Mie, 35, who was prominent in photographs and videos of the first small demonstrations that had been smuggled out of the country. She appeared in those shots with her fist raised.

It says 10 people were killed; diplomats and exiles say the number is much higher. The government is now hunting down participants in the rallies, from leaders like Htay Kywe to prominent monks to other categories of people like “those who watched,” “those who clapped” and “those who joined in,” according to exile groups. “The crackdown is quite systematic, to create terror, real terror, among the people,” said Aung Zaw, editor of the exile magazine Irrawaddy, who has maintained contacts in Myanmar, formerly Burma. “After they put down the monks’ protests they are just hunting down Htay Kywe and other civilian activists,” he said. “They want to arrest them all and put them in prison, perhaps indefinitely.” Thirteen other leaders of the 88 Generation Students Group were arrested after the first protest, on Aug. 19. Most of them, like Htay Kywe, spent many years in prison after leading countrywide demonstrations in 1988 that were violently suppressed by the military.
