In Burma, the trial against deposed leader Aung San Suu Kyi began Monday. She faces a range of charges that the U.N. and others have condemned as politically motivated, including illegally possessing walkie-talkies and violating a state secrets law, totaling up to 15 years in prison. Suu Kyi has been under house arrest since she and other officials were ousted in a February 1 military coup. A local rights group says over 800 people have been killed and 4,300 arrested since mass protests erupted in response to the coup.
