WASHINGTON, Oct 19 (Reuters) President George W Bush announced further US sanctions against Myanmar's military rulers today, saying they had continued to defy international demands to ''stop their vicious persecution.'' Imposing the second package of US measures in less than a month, Bush said he was adding more of Myanmar's leaders to a list of those already facing financial and travel sanctions and that he had instructed the US Commerce Department to tighten export controls on Myanmar.
