U2 have condemned the Burmese government as a "bunch of crooks" for the "mock trial" of Aung San Suu Kyi.

The band - huge critics of the regime - were angered by the further 18-month house arrest of the pro-democracy leader.

They said in a statement: "This bunch of crooks that call themselves a government continue to rob the people of Burma of their rightful leader - this mock trial and its sham verdict is a signal not of junta strength but of fear and cowardice, fear of a 64-year-old woman whom they dare not even let walk down the street."
