SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Nobel Peace Laureate and Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi is in San Francisco during her landmark visit to the U.S. where she received an honorary doctorate from the University of San Francisco.

During an event held at the university's War Memorial Gymnasium Saturday morning, Suu Kyi was presented with the framed degree and given a key to the city by San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee.

Suu Kyi spoke to the crowd in English for several minutes before switching to Burmese. She also answered written questions from the audience.

Suu Kyi's appearance at the university is part of her high-profile visit to the U.S. that has included a private meeting with President Barack Obama and standing ovations at awards ceremonies in Washington and New York, including at the United Nations.
