Democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi's house arrest has been extended, Myanmar officials said, saying authorities had informed her of the decision in a brief meeting on Tuesday at her Yangon home.

"Her house arrest has already been extended," one official said.

Seven Myanmar officials visited her lakeside home around 4:00 pm (1500 IST), and delivered the news during a 10-minute meeting, he said.

A second official confirmed the extension, but neither could give any details about the detention order, including the length of her confinement in her home.
