Bizarre details are emerging about the unwelcome American visitor who swam a mile to meet Nobel-prize-winning Burmese activist Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and caused her arrest. William Yettaw used homemade flippers and plastic containers attached to his arms in order to swim the mile across a lake to reach his hero's compound. The military junta seized upon his unannounced visit, using it as an excuse to arrest opposition leader Suu Kyi before elections, claiming she violated house arrest. But supporters say the activist couldn't turn away the man-described as a "nutter" and "stalker"-when he showed up completely exhausted and begged for shelter. Yettaw's wife said her husband had made the swim last summer but was turned away by Suu Kyi's staff. "I would like people to know that he has no ill intention, that he was not trying to cause harm," his daughter said.
