Friends of arrested Reuters reporter in Myanmar speak out

Since the arrest of the Reuters employee in Myanmar, Wa Lone, on December 12, friends and colleagues have called for his release. The US and Canadian governments along with the EU are demanding his release. Wa Lone had been covering a story on the crisis in the western state of Rakhine, where approximately 665,000 Rohingya Muslims fled. He was arrested by the Myanmar authorities on suspicion of violating the Official Secrets Act.
