Democracy champion Aung San Suu Kyi left Myanmar on Sunday for a landmark trip to the United States, set to see her feted by the US president and quizzed on the progress of reforms.
The Nobel laureate, who was elected to parliament this year, flew out of Yangon accompanied by new US
ambassador to Myanmar Derek Mitchell, according to an AFP reporter at the scene.
