Reuters Journalists Released In Myanmar

According to Reuters, Britain welcomed Myanmar’s release of two Reuters journalists on Tuesday after more than 500 days in jail, a step that Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said could open a new chapter in relations.

The journalists had been jailed and sentenced to seven years in prison after working on an investigation into the killing of 10 Rohingya Muslim men and boys in western Myanmar’s Rakhine State.

Hunt said the release of Wa Lone, 33, and Kyaw Soe Oo, 29, was “fantastic news”.
