Burma's pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi is planning to travel abroad for the first time in 24 years.

The Norwegian foreign ministry said she was expected to visit in June.

A spokesman from her party also told Reuters that she would visit the UK.

The Nobel laureate spent years under house arrest while Burma was ruled by a military junta.

She has previously refused to leave Burma for fear that she would not be allowed to return.

The exact dates of her travel have not been confirmed.
