Japanese journalist murdered

Japanese video journalist Kenji Nagai, killed during the bloody crackdown on protesters in Myanmar last week, was shot at point-blank range, an autopsy has found.


Here's the video. Burmese authorities claimed a stray bullet, which this shows to be bullshit.

Here's the man.

From the story linked above:

"I realized that Mr. Nagai was dead when I saw his body," Yamaji [president of the APF news agency] said in a statement issued through APF. "I was relieved a little because his facial expression was unexpectedly peaceful.

"I told him, 'You must be tired. Let's go home together,' " the statement said.
