Officials with Burma's pro-democracy movement say three of its members have been sentenced to two years in jail for alleged anti-government activities.
Officials with the National League for Democracy said today (Saturday) Win Myint Maung, Win Maung and Tin Hlaing were jailed last week after authorities accused them of inciting public unrest.
Meanwhile, the National League for Democracy says opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi is facing constant intimidation by a pro-government group during her travels in northern Burma.
On Friday, two members of the U.S. House of Representatives (Republican Peter King of New York and Democrat Michael Capuano of Massachusetts) condemned the harassment.
They said in the most serious incident, pro-government activists stopped Aung San Suu Kyi's motorcade and beat on the doors and windows, wielding machetes and sticks.
