  • Bono has hailed the release of pro-democracy leader Aang San Suu Kyi, who was released from house arrest in Burma after 15 years. “She’s kind of the [Nelson] Mandela of our moment, ” he said. “She’s a character of great grace. Her struggle has become a symbol of what’s best about our humanity and worst.” U2’s 2001 hit “Walk On” was written as a tribute of Suu Kyi. [CNN]
