Myanmar’s top court has dismissed an appeal by two journalists belonging to Reuters jailed on charges linked to their reports on the Rohingya.

Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo were sentenced to seven years last September in a case condemned around the world.

They had revealed that state security forces executed 10 Muslim Rohingya during a military operation in 2017.

A lower court had rejected their initial appeal before it was brought to the Supreme Court.

The pair have been in prison for more than a year for breaking Myanmar’s Official Secrets Act
