Myanmar's Win Tin vows to continue democracy fight

YANGON (Reuters) - Myanmar’s longest-serving political prisoner, journalist Win Tin, vowed Tuesday to continue his struggle against 46 years of military rule only moments after his release from a 19-year sentence.

“I will keep fighting until the emergence of democracy in this country,” he told reporters outside a friend’s house. He was still wearing his light-blue prison clothes.
