Myanmar Sentences 3 for Insulting Buddhism
A court in Myanmar sentenced a bar manager and two colleagues to two and a half years in prison Tuesday for using an image of Buddha in a flyer that a judge said insulted Buddhism.
The flyer promoting discounted drinks and electronic music at VGastro Bar appeared on the Facebook in December showing Buddha in vibrant colors wearing large headphones. It was later replaced by an apology.
The court in Yangon sentenced Philip Blackwood of New Zealand and Tun Thurien and Htut Ko Ko Lwin of Myanmar to two years of hard labor for insulting religion and another six months for disobeying an order from a public servant.
The case comes as Myanmar is seeing a surge in Buddhist nationalism.
Netanyahu Seeks Fourth Term as Israelis Vote
Voters are going to the polls Tuesday in Israel where Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is seeking a fourth term as prime minister.
The latest pre-election surveys for the 120-member parliament showed Mr. Netanyahu's conservative Likud party trailing a few seats behind a center-left alliance led by Zionist Union leader Isaac Herzog.
With neither candidate expected to win the 61-seat parliamentary majority, there has been a furious campaign push by the candidates to rally support from smaller groups ranging from communist and Arab-led parties to orthodox Jewish blocs.
Mr. Netanyahu called Tuesday's election three months ago when he fired his senior coalition partners. Analysts say these elections have become a referendum on the prime minister's leadership.
Ahead of the voting, Mr. Netanyahu reversed his earlier stance on Palestinian statehood, saying Monday that he will never support a Palestinian state if he remains in office.
