Myanmar police arrest five student protesters; U.S expresses concern

LETPADAN, Myanmar (Reuters) - Police in Myanmar arrested five students on Friday from among a crowd of about 200 protesters locked in a standoff with security forces barring their entry into the commercial hub of Yangon, a Reuters witness said. The United States, which in recent years has backed political reforms in Myanmar, expressed concern about the arrests, which follow rising tensions between the government and students who have been protesting for months against an education bill. Protesters have said the bill curbs academic independence by stifling student unions and putting decisions in the hands of the government rather than universities. #Yahoo! #content #wcnts #wcntn #typeof-social #cookie #aut #rch #typeof-registered

Insight - Nemtsov's friends ask: where were the police when he was shot?

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Last week, when Boris Nemtsov was shot dead as he walked across a bridge next to the Kremlin, it took 11 minutes before a police car arrived at the scene, according to the time stamp on closed circuit television footage. From the moment the 55-year-old former deputy prime minister was shot late last Friday night, associates of the Kremlin critic have been asking why the police took so long to get there, and how, in such a heavily monitored location, someone could fire six shots at him and get away. #content #wcnts #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #cookie #values #rco #aut
