The city of Oxford has stripped Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi of the Freedom of the City - an honour it bestowed on her 20 years ago.

Other British cities including Glasgow and Sheffield have taken similar action in recent weeks, in response to her failure to condemn the persecution of the Rohingya minority.

Al Jazeera's Barnaby Phillips reports from Oxford.
