There are unconfirmed reports Burma's detained opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi will be released from house arrest in November.
Aung San Suu Kyi has spent much of the past two decades under house arrest after winning Burma's last elections in 1990.
She has come to be seen as a symbol of democracy in a country that has endured two decades of oppressive military rule.
Today there are reports the Burmese home minister has told a gathering of local officials that Ms Suu Kyi will be released in November.
That is one month after the country's first elections in 20 years, which are expected to be held in October.
Burma's military government has so far not confirmed Ms Suu Kyi's release.
