(Newser) – Aung San Suu Kyi feels no ill will toward the American who infiltrated her home in an act that could land her another 5 years of prison, the AP reports. “Suu Kyi said she bore no grudge against (John) Yettaw or his family,” her lawyer said after a meeting today. Meanwhile, Myanmar officials said Suu Kyi is “provided with adequate health care and she is in good health” after reports that she was gravely ill. Closing arguments have been rescheduled to next Friday.
