When Aung San Suu Kyi swept to power in Myanmar, the world hailed a new era. But one year on, the persecution of the country’s Rohingya Muslim minority is tarnishing her international reputation.
Meanwhile, fighting rages in the country’s north, the number of political detainees has risen sharply, and the economy has slowed.
Aung San Suu Kyi’s supporters say she can’t be blamed, and that undemocratic forces are undermining her. Others point to mismanagement and a fundamental lack of political experience.
