Burmese anger grows over pornographic video shot at Buddhist site

Outrage is growing in Myanmar after the emergence of a 12-minute pornographic video shot in Bagan, the country’s best-known tourist spot and Unesco heritage site featuring thousands of revered Buddhist pagodas.

The video was posted on PornHub by users who described themselves as a 23-year-old Italian couple.

The couple’s naked antics against the backdrop of one of Bagan’s ancient pagodas have provoked an angry reaction in Myanmar, with condemnation spreading online.
