UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon arrived in Southeast Asia Wednesday on a mission to ramp up the relief effort for the millions of people in Myanmar who are struggling in the aftermath of the devastating cyclone as fears of a second wave of health-related deaths is increasing. Ban is scheduled to meet with Myanmar's military leaders in a bid to convince them to open up the country to more international aid. "Aid in Myanmar should not be politicized. Our focus now is on saving lives," Ban said.
