Coverage of Suu Kyi release

Many New Mandala followers will have heard that nine news journals were suspended from publishing for either one or two weeks due to their coverage of the release of Aung San Suu Kyi from house arrest in November, as reported by The Myanmar Times. For Burmese readers abroad, here are a couple of examples of what was published, by 7Day News, above, which received a one-week suspension, and by Weekly Eleven, below, which was not suspended, although another publication in the Eleven stable, sports journal First Eleven, was suspended for two weeks.
