Clinton condemns Burma regime


US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has condemned Burma's treatment of jailed pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

"We have condemned the way that she has been treated by the regime in Burma, which we consider to be baseless and totally unacceptable," she said.

Arriving in Thailand ahead of a forum on regional security, Mrs Clinton said the US intends to be an active presence in the region, reaffirming a commitment to North Korea's nuclear disarmament.
