The group PEN America has announced it will honor two imprisoned Reuters journalists, Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, with this year’s Freedom to Write Award. The two have been jailed in Burma after investigating a massacre committed by the Burmese military against Rohingya Muslims in the village of Inn Din. They appeared in court earlier today, after having been charged with violating Burma’s Official Secrets Act. Later in the broadcast, we’ll go to Burma for more.
