Loyalist of Aung San Suu Kyi elected new president
Myanmar's parliament Wednesday elected Win Myint, a loyalist of Aung San Suu Kyi, as new president, while she retained her executive authority over the government.
Myint replaces Htin Kyaw who retired last week for health reasons.
Myint received 403 votes of the combined houses, nearly doubling the total (211) for Myint Swe, the military's nominee, and Vice President Henry Van Tio, who came in a distant third.
The vote comes as Suu Kyi's civilian government has struggled to implement peace and national reconciliation.
The military is still combating ethnic rebels and the country has come under heavy international criticism for its brutal counterinsurgency campaign against the Muslim Rohingya minority.

Washington man under arrest for sending suspicious packages
A 43 year old man from the western U.S. state of Washington is under arrest for allegedly sending several suspicious packages to U.S. military and intelligence installations in the Washington, D.C. area.
The FBI said Thanh Cong Phan was arrested at his house in Everett, Washington.
Phan's motive has not been determined, but the FBI said there was no connection to terrorism.
More than a half dozen packages were shipped to several military bases in the Washington area and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
Court records show that Phan, who has raised concerns over his mental health in the past, has had a couple of run-ins with law enforcement dating back to his teen years.
