YANGON (Reuters) - Myanmar's detained opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi was taken on Monday from her villa to a state guesthouse where she is believed to have met the ruling junta's liaison minister, opposition sources and witnesses said.

Witnesses said a government car with tinted windows left Suu Kyi's tightly guarded lakeside villa in the main city of Yangon and returned about one hour later.

There was no comment from the regime, but the most likely explanation was a meeting with Aung Kyi, a senior member of the ruling military junta appointed as a go-between after September's pro-democracy protests.

"We heard about the meeting between U Aung Kyi and Daw Aung San Suu Kyi this afternoon," said Nyan Win, a spokesman for Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy.
