Five Journalists Arrested in Myanmar after Soldiers Fire at Protesters: Local Media


Security forces in northern Myanmar arrested five journalists after firing at protesters in the city of Myitkyina on Sunday, according to local media.

"Five journalists covering the people protest in front of Buga electricity office in Myitkyina were arrested," said a Facebook post from The 74 Media, a media outlet based in the city.

A journalist at the scene told AFP that security forces used tear gas and then opened fire to disperse the crowd, but it was unclear whether they used rubber bullets or live rounds.
