Myanmar rapper arrested
A popular rapper in Myanmar who criticised the junta over massive power blackouts has been arrested for "spreading propaganda", the military said, the latest arrest in a sweeping crackdown on dissent.
Byu Har posted a Facebook video to his hundreds of thousands of followers last Tuesday slamming junta for rolling power outages that have hit Myanmar in recent weeks.
He mocked junta leader Min Aung Hlaing and said power supply had been better managed during the government of Suu Kyi.
Byu Har was arrested for "inciting with aim of disrupting peace and stability of nation, and the act of spreading propaganda", military said.
