Military & Myanmar executes four democracy activists, including ex-MP



The UN is accusing Myanmar military authorities of using executions to kill their way out of the crisis of their own creation.
Four democracy activists have been executed by Myanmar's military in what is believed to be the first use of capital punishment in decades.
The four, including activist Ko Jimmy and lawmaker Phyo Zeya Thaw, were accused of committing "terror acts".
They were sentenced to death in a closed-door trial that rights groups criticised as being unjust.
Family members of the deceased gathered at Insein prison on Monday, desperate for information on their loved ones.
