Burma's pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi will mark her 59th birthday Saturday under house arrest, with no immediate prospects for release.
Members of her National League for Democracy plan to gather at party headquarters in Rangoon to mark the birthday.
Aung San Suu Kyi has been detained since a clash in May of 2003 between her supporters and a pro-government crowd. Authorities Friday released six more of those arrested in the incident, leaving only Aung San Suu Kyi and her deputy, Tin Oo, in detention.
U.S. officials have expressed regret that Aung San Suu Kyi will spend another birthday under house arrest, and have called on Burma to release her along with Tin Oo.
