Myanmar female protester dies as military crackdown hardens
Al Jazeera, 19 Feb 2021
A 20-year-old woman has become the first protester to die after being injured in Myanmar's anti-coup protests.
She was shot in the head last week when police were trying to disperse a crowd in the capital, Naypyidaw.
Thousands of people have joined nationwide demonstrations for a fourteenth straight day, demanding the release of deposed leader Aung San Suu Kyi and a return to civilian rule.
