Week in 60 is back!
Your weekly snapshot of everything that mattered to me in the news last week, condensed into 60 seconds.
New video about the Northern Territory Intervention, which has just been extended a further ten years. This is a serious curtailment of Aboriginal civil rights and an assault on native title.
Myanmar’s Nobel Peace Prize laureate and pro-democracy leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, is set to travel outside the country for the first time in 24 years.
The party of the newly elected member of parliament said on Wednesday that Suu Kyi had accepted invitations to visit Norway and Britain in June.
Officials in Myanmar told the AFP news agency that Suu Kyi had applied to travel but had not yet been granted a passport.
Suu Kyi was invited to visit Britain during a meeting with David Cameron, the British prime minister, in Yangon last week.
“Two years ago I would have said thank you for the invitation, but sorry,” she said of Friday’s offer by the British leader.
The fact that she would consider the offer, rather than reject it outright, showed “great progress” had been achieved in Myanmar she said.
