Burmese pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi has called for support for democracy in Burma, on her first visit to Europe since 1988.

Addressing the International Labour Organization in Geneva, she also warned against economic development which ignored the rights of workers.

Later, she had to cut short a news conference in Bern after falling ill, apparently from exhaustion.

She had already complained of exhaustion after her speech to the ILO in Geneva.
