VIETNAM-RIGHTS-MEDIA-TRIAL

Convicted Vietnamese blogger Nguyen Huu Vinh (C) stands next to his assistant Nguyen Thi Minh Thuy (R) at a court in Hanoi on September 22, 2016, to appeal his five year-sentence for disseminating anti-government articles on his wildly popular website "Ba Sam". Vinh, more commonly known as Anh Ba Sam, was arrested in 2014 and convicted in March this year, sparking outcry from lawyers and media watchdogs who condemned the jail term as a "travesty of justice". His assistant Nguyen Thi Minh Thuy was also convicted in March and sentenced to three years in prison. / AFP PHOTO / Vietnam News Agency / STR
