Suu Kyi has left home

According to unconfirmed reports, local citizens have said that Suu Kyi has left her house to meet with government officials. If correct, this will be the first time in 12 years of house arrest that she has been allowed outside. Suu Kyi is the leader of the pro-democracy movement against Burma's ruling junta and has spent 12 of the last 18 years under house arrest.

The release follows yesterdays world wide protests outside of various Chinese Embassy's against the detainment of the former Nobel Peace Prize winner.
