A Myanmar judge on Monday found two Reuters journalists guilty of breaching a law on state secrets and sentenced them to seven years in prison, in a landmark case seen as a test of progress toward democracy in the Southeast Asian country.
The reporters had told the court two police officials handed them papers at a north Yangon restaurant moments before other officers arrested them on December 12, in what one police witness testified was a set-up to entrap the journalists.
