Mayanmar arrest three journalists

Myanmar police have arrested three journalists after their paper criticised the financial management of Yangon's government, which is overseen by a protege of leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

Eleven Media's executive editors Kyaw Zaw Lin and Nayi Min, as well as chief reporter Phyo Wai Win, were brought before a Yangon court in handcuffs on Wednesday morning to hear the charges against them before being taken to jail.

Defence lawyer Kyee Myint told AFP news agency the case was filed over an article published on Monday about the funding behind the city's bus network, a scheme run by Yangon chief minister and Aung San Suu Kyi confidant Phyo Min Thein.
