Around 30 Myanmar activists and civil-society members light candles in celebration of the 64th birthday of jailed democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi on Friday evening. The celebration was held at the office of the Community Legal Education Centre, a local legal aid group, after monks prevented the group from meeting at Wat Lanka. "They didn't give us a reason for disrupting the event," said a spokesman for the Myanmar activists who organised the event. "We are praying for someone who deserves freedom."
