Suu Kyi receives honorary Oxford doctorate

Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi has received an honorary civil law doctorate from Oxford University.

Ms Suu Kyi, who was under house arrest in Burma for more than two decades, received the advanced degree - 19 years after she was awarded it.

"During the most difficult years, I was upheld by the memories of Oxford," she said.
