Myanmar frees Aung San Suu Kyi

Myanmar freed the leader of the National League for Democracy, Aung San Suu Kyi, from house arrest today. Myanmar had kept her under confinement for 15 out of the last 21 years.

“I’m happier than if I won the lottery,” said one woman. “But this is just the beginning, not the end. The political prisoners are still in jail. Everyone needs to be released!”
