World News: Aung San Suu Kyi sentenced to four more years in jail in Myanmar Updated: 2022-01-10 17:05:11 KST

Let's take a look at what's going on in 'The World Now.'

Myanmar’s ousted civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been sentenced to four more years in jail.
A military-run court on Monday convicted the Nobel laureate of at least three criminal offences,including two years for the possession of unlicensed walkie-talkies and two more years for breaking coronavirus curbs.
Suu Kyi has been detained ever since the military seized control nearly a year ago and has been slapped with nearly a dozen charges that could mean more than a hundred years in prison if convicted of them all.
She has rejected all allegations and critics have said the charges are all politically motivated.
Meanwhile, the military junta has sought to restrict information about the trials, which have so far been conducted behind closed doors.

Over in New York, at least 19 people, including 9 children, have died in a fire that ravaged an apartment building.
According to New York Mayor Eric Adams on Sunday, another 32 people were sent to hospital, several of them in critical condition.

"This is a horrific, horrific painful moment for the City of New York. And the impact of this fire is going to really bring a level of pain and despair to our city. The numbers are horrific."

Fire authorities have said the death toll was the worst seen in New York for 30 years, adding that they had found victims on every floor of the 19-story building.
At around 11 AM on Sunday, a fire broke out spanning the second and third floors of the Bronx apartment block.
Some 200 firefighters were sent to tackle the blaze, which officials believe was sparked by a malfunctioning electric heater.
This is the second deadly fire in a residential complex in the U.S. this week, following the devastating blaze in Philadelphia.

The 6.9 magnitude earthquake that struck China's northwestern Province of Qinghai on Saturday, has so far resulted in no reported deaths.
However,.. nine people are known to have sustained injuries.
Local authorities say the earthquake affected nearly 6-thousand people in the province.
A total of 217 houses were seriously damaged in the quake, as parts of local roads, bridges and water pipelines were also damaged.
Authorities also said several aftershocks followed, with the largest one at a strong 5.1.
