Suu Kyi’s home damaged

Yangon, May 8:

The home of Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi was slightly damaged in the weekend cyclone, but she was unhurt and remains in good health, her party said today.

“The roof of Daw Suu’s house has to be fixed as a small part of it was taken off by the wind,” National League for Democracy spokesman Nyan Win said.

“She is in good health,” he said, adding that her family doctor was able to visit her as usual.

A Myanmar official said on Monday Aung San Suu Kyi’s house had been lightly damaged, but she was unharmed. Nyan Win said he wasn’t sure if Aung San Suu Kyi’s electricity supply had been reconnected yet at her lakeside home in Yangon, Myanmar’s main city.
