Two Reuters journalists detained in Myanmar are due to appear in court today, when a judge could review a bail request for the pair accused of violating the country’s Official Secrets Act, according to a Reuters report.
Wa Lone, 31, and Kyaw Soe Oo, 27, had worked on Reuters coverage of the crisis in Rakhine state..
The reporters were detained on 12 December after they had been invited to meet police officers over dinner in Yangon.
