Aung San Suu Kyi to defend Myanmar against genocide charges

She was a global human rights and democracy icon, a Nobel Peace Prize winner and a political prisoner who spent 15 years under house arrest. But this week, Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi will personally defend her country from accusations of genocide against the Rohingya community at the United Nation's top court.
