"Daw Aung San Suu Kyi released from house arrest"
Rangoon; The Burmese opposition leader, Ms Aung San Suu Kyi, was relesed
yesterday from two days of confinement at her residence, but police
blockaded the offices of her National League for Democracy(NLD).
Ms Suu Kyi left her compound by car to attend a wedding ceremony and
national day celebrations.
" She has been released from confinement " the aide said.
Ms Suu Kyi was accompanied by military intelligence officials and
members of the NLD youth wing.
Ms Suu Kyi had been prevented from leaving her house since Tuesday,
following the biggest student protest in Burma since the military
junta came to power in 1988.
The blockade of the approaches to Ms Suu Kyi's house, mounted after
600 demonstrators were rounded up by riot police, was still in place.
Police also surrounded the NLD headquarters about two kilometers from
Ms Suu Kyi's residence.
