Burma's military leaders have allowed three senior figures from the main opposition party, the National League for Democracy, to visit its detained leader, Aung San Suu Kyi.
A senior party spokesman, Soe Myint, said security agents escorted NLD chairman Aung Shwe, secretary U Lwin and vice chairman Tin Oo to Aung San Suu Kyi's house in mid-March and allowed them to talk to her for three hours.
One of the three visitors, Tin Oo, remains under house arrest, but the two others were released (from house arrest) Tuesday.
There has been speculation that Aung San Suu Kyi could be released from house arrest in time to join next month's national convention which is to draft Burma's new constitution. The government has been silent about the rumored release.
The Nobel Peace laureate has been detained since a clash last May (30th) between a pro-military mob and her supporters during a political tour in northern Burma.
