Suu Kyi at 60 - isolated but not forgotten by army of supporters

When Aung San Suu Kyi wakes up tomorrow there will be no crowds of well-wishers outside her lakeside home in the Burmese capital, Rangoon, singing happy 60th birthday, no piles of cards and presents to open, and no party preparations to finalise.

The only people greeting the pro-democracy campaigner and Nobel peace laureate will be an elderly housekeeper, the housekeeper's daughter and - if he is granted what is becoming increasingly rare permission - Ms Suu Kyi's doctor.
