Myanmar journalists protest reporter's jail term
Dozens of journalists staged a rare demonstration Tuesday morning in Myanmar's biggest city to protest a jail term given to a reporter who was working on a story about corruption.


Wearing black T-shirts with slogans saying, "We don't want threat on Press Freedom," and carrying banners that read, "Right to Information is life of democracy," nearly 60 reporters marched down a busy downtown Yangon street decrying the three-month prison sentence given to Ma Khine from the Daily Eleven newspaper.
