One Reporter Is Killed, Everyone Is in Danger

BBC footage making the rounds in Japan shows that Japanese APF photographer Kenji Nagai, killed yesterday in the Burma protests, was actually shot at close range and murdered.

This amazing piece of film will hopefully draw enough international outrage that the junta will be shamed, perhaps ousted.

Similar events helped bring down the Nicaraguan Somoza regime in 1979. When ABC News correspondent Bill Stewart was shot to death in Managua by a national guardsman, American reporters captured the killing on tape. The footage was aired across the world, leading to the end of American support of the regime.
