Two days before his arrest, journalist Nathan Maung sensed he was in danger.

The US citizen was detained in Myanmar in March 2021, a month after the military overthrew the government and seized control of the South-East Asian nation.

He was taken to a military interrogation centre outside Yangon.

"[I was] being tortured for 15 days in the hands of the military," he told the ABC.

"The torture — hitting, shouting, kicking, everything — didn't stop."
