Two Reuters journalists arrested in Myanmar, face official secrets charges

Myanmar’s government said on Wednesday that police had arrested two Reuters journalists, Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo. The reporters had been working on stories about a military crackdown on the Rohingya Muslim minority in Rahkine State that has caused almost 650,000 people to flee to neighboring Bangladesh.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The reporters had to know what they were getting into; hopefully, their respective governments will get negotiations going to get them out of this dictatorship, and back home safe and sound.

Myanmar can be hazardous to one's health, if one is of an ethnic minority not of the goverment's liking, or a reporter, intent on getting the story straight on its ethnic cleansing of the Rohingyas.
