olleCagues say Myanmar’s Suu Kyi will attempt to travel again

YANGON, Myanmar (AP) — After a six-day highway standoff, Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi said Thursday that police held her down, took the wheel of her car and drove her back to the capital against her will.
The democracy campaigner, who had spent five nights in the car, was lying down on the back seat with a 104-degree fever when police moved in, removing two of her colleagues from the front seat, members of Suu Kyi’s political party said.
Myanmar’s military government admitted returning Suu Kyi to Yangon against her will Wednesday night, but has not explained its tactics.
At a separate briefing, members of Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy party said their leader was furious when she reached her lakeside home. Her doctors said she had a deep bruise on her wrist from the incident.
Suu Kyi, a colleague and two drivers, were stopped by police 20 miles west of the capital on July 24 as they tried to drive to Bassein to meet members of her party who won parliamentary elections in 1990 but never were allowed to take office because the government annulled the vote.
The 1991 Nobel Peace Prize winner refused to return to Yangon and the military refused to let her proceed to Bassein.
