Police in Myanmar have for the first time decided to give protection to Aung San Suu Kyi after a death threat.

A Special Police Unit had now been assigned to protect the leader of the National League for Democracy (NLD), which has just taken power in Myanmar (Burma), Myanmar local media reports.

The threat was issued over a possible constitutional change enabling Ms Suu Kyi to become president.

She spent many years under house arrest under the former military dictatorship.

A liberalisation process has been under way in recent years, leading to a landslide victory by Ms Suu Kyi's NLD in elections in November.

The man who made the death threat against Ms Suu Kyi has since apologised but the threat, made in a Facebook post, was taken seriously.
