BANGKOK -- Myanmar's ousted de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi met virtually with an attorney Wednesday for the first time since her detention two months ago, Khin Maung Zaw, the head of her legal team told Nikkei Asia.

Junior lawyer Min Min Soe was summoned to a police station in Naypyitaw for a videoconference with the deposed state counselor, who has been under house arrest since the Feb. 1 coup. The call lasted about a half-hour.
