Rohingya crisis

Myanmar in tatters

The seven-year jail sentence awarded to two Reuters journalists ~ Wa Lone (32) and Kyaw Soe Oo (28) ~ for covering the state-sponsored massacre of Rohingyas, most particularly the killing of ten Rohingyas by soldiers and Buddhist villagers at Inn Din in the state of Rakhine, signifies a travesty of justice and an unabashedly severe blow to the certitudes of press freedom.
