Suu Kyi Injured, Diplomats Confirm

Diplomats confirmed today that Burmese pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi suffered a facial wound and an injured shoulder and is being held in a military camp after she and her supporters were caught in a violent clash Friday with assailants controlled by the Burmese military. The Nobel peace laureate and opposition figure was being detained in the Yemon military camp about 25 miles outside Rangoon, the Burmese capital, diplomats said. Late tonight, U.N. officials decided to send a top envoy to Burma on Friday to reinforce the message that Suu Kyi should be released. Three diplomats in the region, including one from a Western embassy in Rangoon, confirmed a report that Suu Kyi, who was arrested Saturday along with at least 18 supporters and colleagues, was injured when a brick or rock was thrown at the car she was traveling in.
