UNITED NATIONS - The United Nations said on Tuesday that two people working for the world body who were sentenced by a Myanmar court in connection with sectarian violence there earlier this year had been released, but a third remained in detention.

"We welcome the release and we hope that the one person remaining in detention will be released," spokesman Farhan Haq told reporters. He gave no further details.
