Five Burmese Activists Released from Jail


Burmese state media say the country's military government has released five political activists from detention.

"The New Light of Myanmar" says three current members and one former member of the opposition National League for Democracy were released Thursday after being, what the newspaper called, "educated."

The report says they were detained May 15th for inciting public unrest and instability.

The activists were among a group of about 50 people who joined a prayer vigil in Rangoon to call for the release of detained opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

The newspaper says another activist detained in April for protesting high taxes also was released Thursday.

Aung San Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy won general elections in 1990, but the military government has refused to recognize those results.

The military has ruled Burma since 1962.
