Martyrs' Day

[album: Day/]

Aung San Suu Kyi was among Burmese civilians and government officials who today travelled to the Martyrs’ Mausoleum in Rangoon to mark the assassination of Suu Kyi’s father, Burmese independence hero General Aung San, who was killed in 1947.  The inviation for Suu Kyi to attend came from the government, of which she has been a thorn in the side since her return to Burma in 1988, and the occasion was the first time in nine years that she has been present at the event.
