SLORC Physically Stops Daw Suu  From Leaving Home

Kyodo News, December 11, 1996.

    Myanmar's military government forces stopped pro-democracy leader 
Aung San Suu Kyi from leaving her home Tuesday to attend a luncheon with 
the acting U.S. ambassador, her aides said Wednesday.
     Army soldiers placed chocks, studded with protruding nails, in front 
of Suu Kyi's car when she tried to leave, and police with nightsticks 
lined up across the front gate to her housing compound, the aides said.
