Myanmar: State of Fear - 101 East exposes a secret interrogation centre and claims of torture

Since a military coup in February, a climate of terror has engulfed Myanmar.

Disappearances, detention without charge, alleged torture and mysterious deaths are just some of the actions under the spotlight following widespread protests against the military takeover.
