Customers buy local weekly journals at a roadside shop in Yangon, Myanmar, Monday, Aug. 20, 2012. Myanmar's government said Monday it was abolishing the harsh practice of directly censoring the country's media, the most dramatic move yet toward allowing freedom of expression in the long-repressed nation. Under the new rules, journalists will no longer have to submit their work to state censors before publication as they for almost half a century. (AP Photo/Khin Maung Win) less
