Aung San Suu Kyi Faces Another Year of House Arrest

Hosted by

When a silver gray Toyota with tinted windows pulled up in front of the home of Burmese Nobel Peace Prize Winner Aung San Suu Kyi today, no one expected good news. Officials of the military goverment had arrived to read out an extension of Su Khi's house arrest, which was scheduled to expire this Sunday. She now faces her fifth straight year of house arrest, and has in fact spent eleven of the past seventeen years confined to her home despite calls from leaders and organizations around the world for her release.
