Aung San Suu Kyi visits Burmese migrants in Thailand

Help

Aung San Suu Kyi vowed to help Burmese migrant workers, as she addressed cheering crowds in Thailand on her first trip outside Burma since 1988.

Crowds of people, some gripping "We want to go home" posters, greeted the democracy leader in an area south of Bangkok where many migrants work.

She arrived on Tuesday and will attend the World Economic Forum on Friday.
