Help

Burmese pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi has said she is still "fond" of her country's army, even though it kept her under house arrest for 15 years.

Speaking on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs, she said the army had done terrible things in Burma but she still thought of it as her father's army and hoped it would redeem itself.

The Nobel Peace Prize winner's father, Aung San, is considered the father of modern Burma, and founded its army.
