Myanmar junta extends Suu Kyi house arrest
Myanmar's military junta has extended opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi's house arrest by another six months, a government source said on Tuesday, reported Reuters.
The official, who asked not to be named, said a government officer had gone to the Nobel laureate's home to read out the extended detention order in person. Suu Kyi has spent more than 12 of the past 18 years under some form of arrest.
Her latest spell in detention started on May 30, 2003 "for her own protection" after clashes between her supporters and pro-junta thugs in the northern town of Depayin.
