WORLD BRIEFING / MYANMAR

Times Wire Reports

Police tightened security around Myanmar’s detained opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi after an American man was reportedly arrested for swimming across a lake and sneaking into her home.

More than 20 officers entered Suu Kyi’s compound, neighbors said. Security is tight, but police rarely enter the site where she has been under house arrest for more than 13 of the last 19 years.

The Myanma Ahlin newspaper said today that police fished an American man out of Yangon’s Inya Lake early Wednesday as he was returning from a visit to the home. The newspaper identified him as John William Yeattaw but gave no details of his motives.
