Aung San Suu Kyi backs down over Burmese oath row

Burmese pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi says she and fellow opposition MPs will take a parliamentary oath, despite disputing the wording of it.

Ms Suu Kyi, who was elected to parliament a month ago, said her party was willing to compromise as they did not want to become a political problem.

She and 42 other National League for Democracy MPs will be sworn in on Wednesday.
