Foreign aid workers providing vital assistance to the victims of the cyclone that ripped through Burma last week, have been warned that another cyclone is on its way, and may hamper their efforts.

Cyclone Nargis 2, named in recognition of Cyclone Nargis 1, is currently moving up through the Indian Ocean on its way to Burma, and officials in Yangon have told foreign aid groups and charities to get their visa applications in early if they don't want to be disappointed.

The Burmese government is extremely wary of having foreigners within its borders, and tries to make it as difficult as possible for them, unless they are tourists spending money.

One official, who can't be named because we can't pronounce his name properly, typified this stance when he told journalists:

"You English, you Bobby Charlton. Go home in London you bloody Princess Anne!"
