U2 singer Bono included a special tribute to imprisoned Burmese pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi during a concert at Wembley during the weekend.

“An extraordinary woman has spent 20 years under house arrest,” the singer told the 88,000 strong crowd. “Her only crime is if she had run for election she would won have that election. Her name is Aung San Suu Kyi. I send a prayer from London to Burma for her safety.”

The band then encouraged the crowd to wear masks of the pro-democracy leader as they launched into ‘Walk On’ – a song they wrote for her – while volunteers marched onstage.

Aung San Suu Kyi – who is currently under house arrest – had her sentence extended last week.
