Prominent human rights lawyer Amal Clooney has appealed to the Myanmar leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, to pardon two Reuters journalists, Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, imprisoned in Myanmar, saying the Nobel peace laureate held the key to their release. The two men, accused of breaching Myanmar’s state secrets law while reporting on a massacre of Rohingya Muslims, were jailed for seven years earlier this month, fuelling international outrage. Clooney said the reporters were arrested in an attempt by Myanmar to keep Reuters from publishing a story on the extrajudicial killings of 10 Rohingya men and boys.
