Myanmar activist Aung San Suu Kyi was released from house arrest Saturday to a throng of thousands of supporters trying to reach out and shake her hand.

“I’m very happy to see you all again,” she told the crowd gathered near her home in Yangon.

Witnesses and police said she had been released.

Her lawyer Nyan Win went into her house, witnesses said.

At party headquarters in the same city, hundreds waited near her National League for Democracy.
