Myanmar constitution: How could it change?

Myanmar's senior political leaders will hold talks on Friday aimed at breaking the deadlock over possible changes to the country's constitution.

Opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, Burmese president Thein Sein and the head of the army Min Aung Hlaing will be among those attending discussions in the capital Naypyitaw.

With a historic general election less than seven months away - the constitution still bars Ms Suu Kyi from becoming president.

Myanmar correspondent Jonah Fisher explains the background and what is at stake.
