On the sixth anniversary of Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi's house arrest, a group of demonstrators in Seoul call for her release.
She's been held virtually incommunicado since May 30, 2003 and is now facing charges for violating house arrest.
At a security meeting in Singapore, US Defence Secretary Robert Gates joined calls to demand her release:

"We saw Burma's resistance to accept basic humanitarian aid last year following the cylcone, a decision indicative of that country's approach to the rest of the world. We need to see real change in Burma, the release of political prisoners, including Aung San Suu Kyi and the initiation of meaningful dialogue between the junta and the opposition."
Condemned by the West as a show trial, Suu Kyi's supporters in South Korea proclaimed it was a plot to have her killed:

"Actually, our leader is innocent and is not guilty."
Suu Kyi has spent 13 of the past 19 years in some form of detention.
Activists fear for her health if she's convicted.
