Japanese Photo-Journalist Killed in Myanmar

Kenji Nagai was murdered.

Nagai, a Japanese photo-journalist with extensive experience in war-torn parts of the world, was shot at point-blank range (Times Online) by a Burmese soldier while filming anti-government demonstrations in Myanmar.

The Myanmar government had originally said that Nagai had caught a couple of stray bullets, but recently recovered video evidence shows otherwise.
