John Yettaw arrives back in the United States
The man jailed for visiting Burma's detained pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi has returned home to the US.
John Yettaw arrived in Chicago from Bangkok, where he had been treated in hospital after being deported from Burma on Sunday.
Burmese authorities released him from a seven-year prison sentence under a deal struck by visiting US Senator Jim Webb.
He said he had no regrets about his actions, which led to Ms Suu Kyi's detention being extended by 18 months.
She was charged with breaking the terms of her house arrest by sheltering Mr Yettaw, who swam uninvited to her house using a pair of homemade flippers.
Mr Yettaw, a Mormon, said he had been sent by God to deliver a warning to Ms Suu Kyi that she would be assassinated.
He arrived in Chicago on Wednesday wearing a surgical mask to guard against infection. His health has been described as fragile.
He told the Associated Press he had no regrets about what he had done.
"If I had to do it again, I would do it a hundred times - a hundred times, to save her life," he said.
"That they locked her up, it just breaks my heart."
Mr Yettaw, from Falcon, Missouri, was catching a connecting flight to his final destination of Springfield in his home state.
