Yangon, June 30 (AFP): Concerns for Myanmar democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi’s health emerged today as she marked one month in detention amid growing calls for the military government to release her.
The British government has said that the 58-year-old National League for Democracy (NLD) leader is being held in a two-roomed hut at the notorious Insein jail.
A close family friend of the feisty Opposition leader said he was confident she would remain in strong spirits despite the harsh conditions. But he said there were concerns a chronic stomach condition which has troubled her for many years may flare up again. "I'm not worried about her mental strength. I’m just worried about her health.”
