Police to guard Aung San Suu Kyi

Police in Myanmar have for the first time decided to give protection to Aung San Suu Kyi after a death threat, the BBC reported on 11 February.
A police chief told BBC Burmese that a special unit had now been assigned to protect the leader of the National League for Democracy (NLD), which has just taken power in Myanmar.
The threat, made in a Facebook post, was issued over a possible constitutional change enabling Ms Suu Kyi to become president.
The man, Ye Lwin Myint, who made the death threat against Ms Suu Kyi has since apologised.
Up until now, Ms Suu Kyi has been protected by her own security detail, who will continue to guard her. Police units will provide extra protection outside her home, the report said.
