Buddhist nationalists mistaken Morgan Freeman with Annan

The association on Monday condemned Annan's involvement in the conflict in his facebook status. It said that "ridiculous looks and disrespectful people cannot talk about our own problems in the country".

The status also included a photo, not Annan, but Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman. Freeman went through the red in the photo "X"and the accompanying text read:"We don't need Coffee Annan, he'll be gone.The
