From the page:

“The Japanese photojournalist Kenji Nagai was one of nine killed and 11 injured when the military junta ordered troops to fire into a crowd of pro-democracy demonstrators.

Tens of thousands of protesters took to the streets for a second day in the country’s main city, defying the government repression that has drawn international appeals for restraint.

A Japanese embassy official in Burma confirmed that Nagai, 50, who was covering the protests in Rangoon, was among those killed. Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary Nobutaka Machimura said Tokyo would lodge a protest with the junta over the killing.

Even after being shot, Nagai attempted to continue video taping the attacks on protesters.

The morning news played the video of the moment Nagai was hit, and it appears he was shot at point blank range by a Burmese soldier:”
