Burmese police have arrested an American man they fished out of a lake near the home of detained democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi's Rangoon home, the Guardian reports. Authorities believe the man dodged security around the compound by swimming through the lake and then hid inside Suu Kyi's home for two days for unknown reasons.
The activist never encountered the intruder, said a spokesman for Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy. "He's not met with the Lady," he said. "He was hiding in the house." Burma has stepped up security around the compound, where the Nobel Peace Prize-winner has been kept under house arrest for most of the 19 years since she won an election in 1990 that was later nullified.
