Suu Kyi elected as Myanmar opposition leader

Aung San Suu Kyi won re-election Sunday as the opposition leader in Myanmar at a gathering of opposition members in Yangon.

It was the first conference of opposition members in 25 members, and is another indication of the military junta loosening its reins and allowing such a gathering.

One hundred and twenty members of the National League for Democracy voted for Suu Kyi on the third day of the party's meeting.
