BRIEF - Ma Khine released from prison

Eleven Media reporter Ma Khine, also known as Naw Khine Khine Aye, was released from Loikaw prison on Friday after being jailed in mid-December for charges of trespassing, using abusive language, and defamation, Eleven Media reported. The journalist was brought to court by a lawyer she had interviewed for an expose. Journalists and lawyers in Rangoon rallied in her support early this year, taking up the case as an example of remaining threats to press freedom in Burma.
