Ad Feedback

In the southeast Asian nation of Myanmar, testimony is expected to conclude this week in the trial of pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

The Nobel Peace Prize winner is charged with violating terms of her house arrest because she allowed an univited guest to stay at her home.

Suu Kyi testified Wednesday that the government was at fault for the security breach.

The court refused to allow three out of four witnesses to testify for the defense.

If found guilty, Suu Kyi could be imprisoned for up to five years.
