Myanmar releases detained U.S. journalist Nathan Maung

Myanmar’s junta chief Senior General Min Aung Hlaing arrives as he attends the ASEAN leaders’ summit at the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) secretariat building in Jakarta, Indonesia.

U.S. citizen Nathan Maung has been released from detention in Myanmar and is due to fly out of the country on Tuesday, his lawyer Tin Zar Oo said.

A court dismissed the case against the editor at Kamayut Media after the plaintiff withdrew the lawsuit, Tin Zar Oo said on Monday.

The United States had expressed concern over the detention of Nathan Maung and another U.S. citizen, Daniel Fenster, by the military authorities in the Southeast Asian country.
