CAPTION ONLY: SET FOR DEMOCRACY MEETING

A National League for Democracy party member sits in a tent in the compound of Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi in Rangoon. Suu Kyi, winner of the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize, said the meeting of her NLD party would proceed at the site Sunday despite increasing government pressure to derail it. Burma's military regime has arrested at least 90 backers of Suu Kyi since Monday, and Suu Kyi said she might be arrested, too. "You know how it is with these dictatorial governments," said Suu Kyi, who spent six years under house arrest. Amnesty International fears detainees may face torture.
