SINGAPORE -- The Association of Southeast Asian Nations has finally named Brunei's second foreign minister, Erywan Yusof, as the regional grouping's special envoy to crisis-wracked Myanmar.

Yusof will be tasked with mediating the political unrest that has gripped the country since the military seized power on Feb. 1, ousting the elected National League for Democracy government of State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi.
