TEHRAN, Iran - About 100 students staged a rare protest Monday against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, calling him a "dictator" as he gave a speech at Tehran University marking the beginning of the academic year.

While the demonstrators and hard-line students loyal to Ahmadinejad scuffled in the auditorium, the president ignored chants of "Death to the dictator" and gave his speech on the merits of science and the pitfalls of Western-style democracy, witnesses said.

· Myanmar Junta Names Liaison to Detained Opposition Leader

RANGOON, Burma (AP) — The ruling junta of Burma appointed a Cabinet official Monday to coordinate contacts with detained opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, a move that comes with the nation under intense international pressure to enter talks with the democracy movement.

Student activists, meanwhile, claimed residents of Rangoon are still showing opposition to the regime by harassing soldiers following last month's bloody crackdown on the biggest anti-government demonstrations in nearly two decades.
