Kenji Nagai Lays Fatally Injured in Burma Protests

A Japanese news photographer dead just like that in the riot that ensued after Burma’s military thugs fired at demonstrators last Thursday.

The photojournalist, Kenji Nagai of APF news agency, was himself photographed raising his camera over his head as he lay fatally wounded on the street, felled by a bullet as soldiers charged against anti-government protesters.

The protests in Burma have been simmering for more than a week now demanding freedom and a return to democracy. The mass protests are being led by revered monks in their saffron clothes.

High prices of fuel and other basic commodities sparked the recent protests, inflaming pent-up opposition to harsh military rule and poverty.

Expressions of indignation have been expressed around the world led by the United Nations and the European Union, but so far these actions consisted mainly of words.
