Burma Frees 91 Political Prisoners - 2003-07-23


Burma's military government says it has freed 91 political prisoners from detention since the arrest of democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi in May.

The government made the announcement Tuesday. It did not say how many more people are in custody, or when the democracy leader will be released.

Aung San Suu Kyi and an unknown number of her followers were arrested May 30th following clashes between pro-democracy supporters and demonstrators loyal to the military government.

The government says it is holding Aung San Suu Kyi for her own safety. Neither her whereabouts, nor those of the other detainees, is clear.
