Aung San Suu Kyi Meets With Burmese Minister

excerpt from:

BBC NEWS | Asia-Pacific | Suu Kyi meets Burmese minister Burma's pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi has held her first meeting with the senior military official appointed to liaise with her.

She spent just over an hour with former general Aung Kyi, state media said.

Aung Kyi was given the task of liaising between the government and Ms Suu Kyi earlier this month, in an apparent concession to international pressure.

Burma's junta has been heavily criticised by the UN for its crackdown on anti-government protests last month.

The government said 10 people died during the crackdown, but diplomats believe the toll was much higher. Thousands more - many of them monks - are thought to have been detained.
