YANGON, Myanmar — Thousands of wildly cheering supporters greeted Myanmar pro-democracy hero Aung San Suu Kyi as she arrived at the headquarters of her political party Sunday, a day after her unconditional release from seven years under house arrest.

Arriving by car from the lakeside residence that has been her prison, she slipped into the ramshackle headquarters of her National League for Democracy as people shouted "We love Suu" amid thunderous applause.
