Reporters released after 500 days in Myanmar jail


Two journalists, who were detained for their reporting on the Rohingya crisis, have been released from jail in Myanmar.

Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo were freed following a presidential pardon, months after being sentenced to seven years for crimes against the nation.

They were arrested in December 2017 whilst reporting on a military crackdown in Rakhine.

Last month, the pair were awarded the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for their work.
