    0

    YANGON: The co-founder of Myanmar’s pro-democracy opposition and the nation’s longest-serving political prisoner, Win Tin, has died at the age of 84, his party said on Monday, after battling for decades to bring freedom to the formerly junta-run country. The veteran campaigner, whose near two decades in jail failed to dull his commitment to the democratic cause, had suffered worsening ill health in recent weeks. He died in hospital in Yangon early on Monday, National League for Democracy party spokesman Nyan Win told Agence France-Presse. A funeral service will be held on Wednesday.
