Supporters of Burma's Pro Democracy Leader Aung San Suu Kyi say are marking a total of 10 years of her house arrest, and urging the United Nations Security Council to do something about it.
Her supporters planned rallies Monday in several cities around the world to press for her freedom. Burma's military junta has detained Aung San Suu Kyi for several periods totaling a decade.
Her party, the National League for Democracy, won a landslide victory in 1990 elections, but Burma's military rulers have not allowed the party to take power.
Earlier this month a human rights watchdog group called for the UN Security Council to address violations of human rights in Burma, including the detention of Aung San Suu Kyi.
