A court in Myanmar has sentenced two Reuters journalists to seven years in prison for violating a state secrets act while investigating violence against the Rohingya minority.
 
Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, nationals of Myanmar, were arrested while carrying official documents which had just been given to them by police officers.
 
They have maintained their innocence, saying they were set up by police.
 
The case has been widely seen as a test of press freedom in Myanmar.
 
"I have no fear," Wa Lone said after the verdict. "I have not done anything wrong. I believe in justice, democracy and freedom."
