Rally in Yangon to mark anniversary of Reuters reporters’ arrest

Dozens of protesters gather in downtown Yangon to mark the one-year anniversary of the arrest of two Reuters journalists, Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, over their reporting of the Rohingya crisis. Wa Lone, 32, and Kyaw Soe Oo, 28, were arrested outside a Yangon restaurant on December 12 and later handed seven-year jail sentences after exposing the extrajudicial killing of 10 Rohingya men during the military’s brutal crackdown on the stateless minority last year.
