Supporters in Burma await Aung San Suu Kyi's release

Hundreds of supporters of Burmese pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi have gathered outside her home for a second day, ahead of her expected release.

Her latest term of house arrest expires on Saturday and military authorities have increased security on the streets of Rangoon.

But Aung San Suu Kyi, who has been detained for 15 of the last 21 years, may not accept a conditional release if it excludes her from political activity.

The BBC's correspondent in Rangoon cannot be named for security reasons.
