US to ease Burma sanctions, says Hillary Clinton

The United States has announced that it will ease some sanctions against Burma.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said some travel and financial restrictions would be relaxed, with Burmese leaders allowed to visit the US.

The news comes after by-elections in Burma on Sunday in which an opposition party headed by pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi took the majority of the seats.
