Crowds of reporters gathered today near her home, as rumors swirl she is about to be released. And, as CNN has been reporting, about five to six police trucks were parked outside her home today, with one seen entering the compound.
She has spent most of her last 20 years under house arrest.
A winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991, Aung San Suu Kyi is a pro-democracy icon known the world over, and a major figure in Myanmar’s long struggle for democracy.

Stay with CNN as we continue to monitor the expected release of Aung San Suu Kyi.
