A court in Myanmar has sentenced overthrown leader Aung San Suu Kyi to another four years in jail.

Aung San Suu Kyi was on trial for illegally possessing walkie-talkies and breaking coronavirus restrictions.

The jail sentence comes on top of a two-year jail term handed down in December, but if she is found guilty on all counts against her, she could be locked up for decades.
