Suu Kyi condemns Myanmar constitutional rules

Myanmar's opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi has said constitutional rules which bar her from running for president because her sons are half British are "unfair, unjust and undemocratic".

At a news briefing with US President Barack Obama in Yangon, she said the reform process in the once military-ruled nation had hit a "bumpy patch".

Mr Obama said America would continue to support the transition to democracy but admitted there is still work to be done.

Jonah Fisher reports on Ms Suu Kyi's frustration at the pace of political reform.
