Suu Kyi 'I was fascinated by the lights'

Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi has spoken about leaving Burma for the first time in over two decades and said she was "fascinated" by the lights she saw from the plane cockpit as she flew in to Bangkok.

Ms Suu Kyi said she had seen brighter lights in the past but because she had left a Burma where there were electricity cuts the scene in Bangkok caught her attention.

Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Bangkok she concluded that her country "needed an energy policy".

For the past two decades, Aung San Suu Kyi has either been under house arrest or was afraid that if she left Burma she would not be allowed to go back.
