Activist Acknowledged

RANGOON () -- Burmese rights activist Aung San Suu Kyi's picture appeared for the first time since her release from house arrest in state-run Burmese newspapers Thursday.


A picture of her participating in an official Martyrs' Day ceremony Wednesday was on the front page of all state-run Burmese-language and English-language newspapers.


The picture and caption, which mentioned her by name, marked the first time she had been named in state-run newspapers since being released from six years of house arrest last week.
