Fort Wayne, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Local Burmese activists are hoping the Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi, will be available to visit the Summit City in late September.
Suu Kyi, 67, had spent much of a quarter-century under house arrest by the Myanmar’s ruling military. In 2010 she was freed and elected to a seat in the nation’s year-old parliament.
In 1991 she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
According to the 2010 census, the majority of the state’s roughly 7,900 Burmese are residents of either Allen or Marion counties.
