MYANMAR-POLITICS

Members of the National League for Democracy (NLD) party lay a wreath in front of the late General Aung San statue to mark the 100th birthday of independence hero Aung San, in Yangon on February 13, 2015. Known affectionately as "Bogyoke", or General, Aung San is adored in Myanmar and credited with unshackling the country from colonial rule and embracing its ethnic minorities in a vision of unity that unraveled catastrophically in the military-dominated decades that followed his 1947 assassination.
