Myanmar telecom deal with Qatar firm sparks ire

In this June 14, 2013 photo, a roadside sign advertises a phone call facility in Hmawbi, on the outskirts of Yangon, Myanmar. Foreign companies will tap into one of the world's final telecom frontiers Thursday, June 27, 2013, when Myanmar hands out licenses to operate two new mobile phone networks — part of efforts by the long-isolated nation to use technology to spur economic development. The sign reads "domestic and local" indicating phone calls can be made within Hmawbi and beyond. (AP Photo/Gemunu Amarasinghe)
