Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi called the verdict returning her to house arrest "totally unfair," but remains cheerful and alert, her lawyer said. A Myanmar court this week found Suu Kyi, 64, guilty of sheltering an uninvited American visitor. The conviction, though expected, drew sharp criticism from world leaders and human rights groups, as well as promises of new EU sanctions against Myanmar. Her sentence of three years in prison with hard labor was reduced to 18 months of house arrest by order of the head of the country's ruling military junta, Senior Gen. Than Shwe. (AP)
