Myanmar ordered 452 prisoners freed on Thursday in an apparent goodwill gesture ahead of a historic visit by President Barack Obama, but activists criticized the move for failing to focus on hundreds of political detainees. The announcement came in the state-run newspaper where it was said some of the prisoners to be released are foreigners who will be extradited, but gave no details. It was not immediately clear if any political prisoners were among those granted freedom.AP
