PHNOM PENH -- Cambodian Foreign Minister Prak Sokhonn has urged Myanmar's military regime to return Aung San Suu Kyi to house arrest, after the ousted de facto leader was transferred to prison last week.

Sokhonn, who is the Association of Southeast Asian Nations' special envoy for Myanmar, expressed his concern in a letter to Wunna Maung Lwin, the foreign minister appointed by Myanmar's military, which calls its regime the State Administrative Council (SAC).
