Myanmar (Burma)

    Myanmar’s detained democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi has refused to meet her doctor and a government minister who is in charge of liaising with her and refused to see anyone except her lawyer Kyi Win, state-controlled media said. Kyi Win met her on Sept. 1 amid reports that the 63-year-old Nobel laureate had refused food supplies since Aug. 15. Kyi Win is working on an appeal of the latest extension of Suu Kyi’s detention order. She has been in prison or under house arrest for nearly 13 of the past 19 years. (Reuters)
