Burma’s opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi was joined by her estranged brother, Aung San Oo, on Sunday morning at Martyrs Mausoleum in Rangoon where they paid respect to their father, Burmese national hero Aung San, and eight other members of the interim government who were assassinated on this day, 19 July, in 1947.

Several other government officials attended the ceremony, the 68th of its kind, including House Speaker Shwe Mann and Vice-president Sai Mauk Kham.
