Aung San Suu Kyi
Myanmar's ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been sentenced by a court to life in prison for plotting to overthrow the government.

Reuters quoted a source close to the trial as saying.

Earlier, the New York Times reported that a court in the country was expected to rule on Tuesday. This is the first time in a row that Suu Kyi has been sentenced to life in prison.

The 76-year-old leader has been in custody since the military coup in February. She has been charged with 10 more offenses and could face up to 102 years in prison if convicted.

Suu Kyi is being held in a closed-door trial in Myanmar's capital, Naypyidaw. The military junta has barred five of its lawyers from speaking to the media, saying their contacts could "destabilize the country".
