Burmese Opposition Leader Charged

Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi—who’s been under house arrest for 13 of the last 16 years—will be charged for allegedly entertaining an American man who swam across a lake to her home to visit her. Suu Kyi, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, might be the victim of a setup, pro-democracy activists say. The security around her lakeside home was tightened on Tuesday after the government alleged that John William Yettaw of Missouri—who’s also been detained—spent two days there. The country’s military junta also arrested Suu Kyi’s physician, who has been caring for her as her health worsens.
