Suu Kyi to receive Nobel Peace Prize after 21 years

GENEVA (AFP) - Myanmar democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi arrived in Switzerland on Wednesday on the first leg of a historic European tour which will see her accept the Nobel Peace Prize that thrust her into the global spotlight two decades ago.
On her arrival in Geneva Ms Suu Kyi stepped off the flight 'smiling and seemingly in great form', an airport spokesman said.

The lakeside city is the starting point for the more than two-week trip taking the opposition leader to Britain, France, Ireland and Norway, where she will give a speech acknowledging the 1991 Nobel award.
The visit marks a new milestone in the political changes that have swept the country formerly known as Burma since decades of military rule ended last year, bringing to power a new quasi-civilian government.
