Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi has defended the jailing of two Reuters journalists, despite international condemnation.

She said Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo had broken the law and their conviction had “nothing to do with freedom of expression at all”.

The two were sentenced for possession of police documents while investigating the killing of Rohingya Muslims.
