Allegations of torture by Myanmar's military regime revealed in new Amnesty International report

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."
