Naypyitaw: Lawyers for two Reuters journalists sentenced to seven years in prison for their reporting on Myanmar's brutal crackdown on Rohingya Muslims have appealed their conviction to the country's Supreme Court.

Reporters Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo remained in Insein Prison while their lawyers attended the court's first hearing on their final appeal on Tuesday in the capital, Naypyitaw. The prisoner's wives also came to the court hearing, bringing their young children.

It also has highlighted freedom of expression problems in Myanmar, even after it transitioned from military rule to an elected government under Nobel peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi.
