Myanmar holds off on press law following criticism - Article Photos 1/10

In this March 14, 2013 photo, 83-year old veteran journalist Win Tin, former political prisoner, who spent 19-years in prison, recipient of UNESCO/Guillermo Cano World Press Freedom Prize and World Association of Newspapers' Golden Pen of Freedom Award speaks in an interview in Yangon, Myanmar. Win Tin said the proposed media law would inevitably lead to self-censorship. Myanmar journalists just getting used to their new era of freedom howled when the government announced plans for a media law that could lock many old restrictions back into place. Then, in the latest of many moves that never would have happened under the country's old military rulers, the government backed off. (AP Photo/Gemunu Amarasinghe)
