Myanmar's Suu Kyi convicted in further blow to democracy

Aung San Suu Kyi, the civilian leader of Myanmar who was ousted in a de facto coup this year, was convicted on two charges Monday and handed a four-year sentence that was quickly cut in half -- in proceedings widely criticized as a further effort by the country's military rulers to roll back the democratic gains of recent years.
