Suu Kyi back home after Europe tour


Opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi has returned home after a triumphant tour of Europe, where she won enthusiastic support for her role in Burma’s democratic transition and was celebrated like a head of state.

Cheering crowds packed into Rangoon’s airport today and lined the roads outside hoping to see Ms Suu Kyi.

During her two-week trip, Ms Suu Kyi met with political leaders in Switzerland, Norway, Ireland, the UK and France.

The trip’s highlights included Ms Suu Kyi’s long-awaited acceptance speech for the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize, which she won while under house arrest in Burma.

The former military regime kept Ms Suu Kyi under house arrest for 15 of 23 years. She was freed in 2010, after the military ceded power to a nominally civilian government.
