10 March - Burmese journalists and foreign correspondents meet in Bangkok for Win Tin

Burmese journalists and foreign correspondents met at the Foreign Correspondents Club in the Thai capital of Bangkok yesterday.

They heard Zin Linn, one of Win Tin’s former fellow detainees, describe the man they call "Saya", the Sage. They also heard Burmese reporter Khin Maung Win and British journalist Larry Jagan describe their experiences in Burma and the constraints under which the Burmese press has to work.
