Obama: Myanmar elections 'neither free nor fair'

The first elections in military-ruled Myanmar in 20 years were "neither free nor fair," President Barack Obama said Sunday.

"For too long the people of Burma have been denied the right to determine their own destiny," he told students at St. Xavier College.

"Even as we do not impose any system of government on other countries, we must always speak out for those human rights that are universal and the right of people everywhere to make their own decision about how to shape their future," the president said.
