Suu Kyi gives historic Parliament address


Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi has urged the UK to support moves to democracy in Burma, in an historic address to both Houses of Parliament.

Ms Suu Kyi said the support of people in the UK and around the world could get Burma much further towards change.

She earlier met Prime Minister David Cameron at Downing Street.

Ms Suu Kyi, who spent two decades under house arrest during military rule in Burma, is the first non-head of state to address Parliament.
