    Aung San Suu Kyi released

    [​IMG]



    YANGON, Myanmar - Myanmar's military government freed its archrival, democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi, on Saturday after her latest term of detention expired. Several thousand jubilant supporters streamed to her residence.

    A smiling Suu Kyi, wearing a traditional jacket and a flower in her hair, appeared at the gate of her compound as the crowd chanted, cheered and sang the national anthem.

    "If we work in unity, we will achieve our goal. We have a lot of things to do," she told the well-wishers, who quickly swelled to as many as 5,000. Speaking briefly in Burmese, she said they would see each other again Sunday at the headquarters of her political party.

    The 65-year-old Nobel Peace Prize laureate, whose latest period of detention spanned 7 1/2 years, has come to symbolize the struggle for democracy in the Southeast Asian nation ruled by the military since 1962.

    The release from house arrest of one of the world's most prominent political prisoners came a week after an election that was swept by the military's proxy political party and decried by Western nations as a sham designed to perpetuate authoritarian control.

    Supporters had been waiting most of the day near her residence and the headquarters of her party. Suu Kyi has been jailed or under house arrest for more than 15 of the last 21 years.

    As her release was under way, riot police stationed in the area left the scene and a barbed-wire barricade near her residence was removed, allowing the waiting supporters to surge forward.

    Her release was immediately welcomed by world leaders and human rights organizations

    You are welcome mkuu. Huyu mama kwa kweli ni chuma cha reli!...Yaani through her party aliwapiga chini wale viongozi wa
    kijeshi katika kura lakini jamaa wakakataa kuachia ngazi live. Kisha wakamtundika jela. Kweli demokrasia ina safari ndefu
    hapa ulimwenguni.

    American John Yettaw of Falcon, Mo. is arrested after an unauthorized visit to Suu Kyi's home. Yettaw had to swim across a lake to reach the democracy icon's compound, and Suu Kyi is charged with breaking detention rules even though she did not invite Yettaw to her home.
