A newly-released inmate is reunited with family members after walking out of Myanmar's Insein prison following a prisoner release in Yangon, on July 30, 2015Myanmar on Thursday released 155 Chinese nationals, who were last week jailed for illegal logging, as a "goodwill" gesture following intense lobbying from Beijing in a mass amnesty that also freed several political prisoners. The announcement comes after the stiff logging sentences sharply raised tensions between the once closely-bonded neighbours whose ties have cooled since Myanmar began emerging from decades of military rule in 2011. Authorities have freed all of the 155 Chinese nationals handed jail sentences for illegal logging in northern Myanmar near the China border, Beijing’s foreign ministry spokesman Hong Lei said in a statement.
