Myanmar activist Aung San Suu Kyi was released from house arrest Saturday, police outside her home said. CNN could not independently verify the report.
Crowds of supporters waited near her home in Yangon. Hundreds of others waited near her National League for Democracy.
Suu Kyi has spent 15 of the past 21 years under house arrest because of her fight for democracy in the nation formerly known as Burma.
Security has been stepped up in Myanmar, but it was unclear whether that was because of the country's first elections in two decades last Sunday.
