Maung Maung Zeya, a senior photo and video journalist for the Democratic Voice of Burma has been sentenced to 13 years in prison. He had led a team of journalists who smuggled video footage out of Burma until he was arrested last April photographing the aftermath of bomb attacks in Rangoon. His sentencing comes two months after his son, Sithu Zeya, was imprisoned for eight years on similar charges, and just days after blogger, Kaung Myat Hlaing, had 10 years added to his original two-year prison sentence.
