Myanmar has launched a new daily newspaper, Myawaddy, bringing the total number of state-owned dailies to four.

The newspaper, which is based in the new capital Nay Pyi Taw, started publishing on Friday and was available in Yangon on Saturday.

The introduction of the 16-page newspaper came two days after a new elected civilian government took office on Wednesday.

The other three state-run newspapers are Kyaymon, Myanma Ahlin and the English-language New Light of Myanmar.

According to Myanmar's ministry of information, besides the state-owned newspapers, 172 journals and 182 magazines are also being published.
