June 3, 2021 — The Society of Environmental Journalists has written the U.S. State Department urging it to do all in its power to free two U.S. journalists working in Myanmar who have been imprisoned since the military seized power there in February. Danny Fenster, managing editor of the independent news outlet Frontier Myanmar, was detained May 24 as he prepared to fly to the U.S. for a family visit. Nathan Maung, editor-in-chief of the local news outlet Kamayut Media, was seized in March.
