UN envoy, Razali Ismail, has been allowed to see Aung San Suu Kyi on the last day of his visit to Burma and said that she was "well and in good spirits".
There had been concern that ASSK had been severely injured when she was ambushed and taken into "protective custody" by Burma's military regime.
The government had said that at least 4 people were killed and 50 were injured in the clashes associated with ASSK's seizure, but other reports have suggested that as many as 75 members of the opposition, accompanying ASSK, were beaten to death by pro-government supporters...
Mr. Ismail has said that he is optimistic that ASSK will be freed within a couple of weeks, and that he will return for further talks in the next few weeks...
