Yangon: The UN has given Aung San Suu Kyi a
10-year-old peace award delayed by her long house arrest.

A UN official visiting Myanmar presented Suu Kyi with its
Mandanjeet Singh Prize for the Promotion of Tolerance and
Nonviolence today.

The prize is named after an Indian writer and
philanthropist.

Myanmar`s former ruling junta had Suu Kyi under house
arrest when she was named for the prize in 2002.

The Paris-based UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural
Organisation said in a statement that its chief Ryuhei Hosoya
delivered the prize.
