Myanmar seems to be in chaos trying to deal with both the national and international push back against human rights violations regarding over 650,000 Rohingya Muslim minority people who have been driven out of Myanmar.

But now the immense pressure upon the Myanmar government to acknowledge the plight of the 650,000 Rohingya Muslim minority has ratcheted up and people both in Myanmar and abroad want action to stop displacement and rout of the Rohingyas.

But now the only two international journalists Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo that were getting the story out to the rest of the world have been arrested by the Myanmar police.

More details on the developing story from Mole.Com – quote…

“Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo went missing on Tuesday evening after they had been invited to meet police officials over dinner.

Reuters’ driver Myothant Tun dropped them off at Battalion 8’s compound at around 8 pm and the two reporters and two police officers headed to a nearby restaurant. The journalists did not return to the car.

The Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh say their exodus from the mainly Buddhist nation was triggered by a military counter-offensive in Rakhine state that the United Nations has branded “a textbook example of ethnic cleansing”.

“Reuters reporters Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo have been reporting on events of global importance in Myanmar, and we learned today that they have been arrested in connection with their work,” said Stephen J. Adler, president and editor-in-chief of Reuters.

“We are outraged by this blatant attack on press freedom. We call for authorities to release them immediately,” he said.

A spokesman for Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi confirmed that the two journalists had been arrested.” – Quote attribution Mole.Com.
