Myanmar's democratic icon

Likely release of Aung San Suu Kyi sparks speculation on what she will do once she regains freedom.


    For most of the last 20 years, Aung San Suu Kyi has been in detention.

    She has long campaigned for sanctions designed to pressure the military into releasing her and more than 2,000 other political prisoners.

    While some say she will continue her campaign if released, others say she should take a step back from politics.
