YANGON, Sep 28 (Reuters) A shot was fired as soldiers today charged chanting protesters in central Yangon sending people scurrying for cover down side alleys, a witness said.

Crowds several hundred strong were taunting soldiers sealing off the area around the Sule Pagoda, end-point of a week of monk-led marches against 45 years of military rule and economic hardship.
