Aung San Suu Kyi has likened her long-running campaign for democracy in Burma to the uprisings in the Middle East.

The Nobel prize winner made the comparison in the first of her Reith Lectures for the BBC, recorded via satellite link from Rangoon.

Aung San Suu Kyi's Reith lectures will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 and the BBC World Service on Tuesday, 28 June and 5 July
