New footage of journalist shot in Burma shows soldier leaving scene with camera

New video footage of a Burmese soldier taking what appears to be a video camera from the fallen body of Kenji Nagai, the Japanese journalist who was shot to death in September during the Burmese anti-government protests in the nation’s capital Yangon, was aired on the TV Asahi news show “Hodo station” Monday evening, the Asahi Shimbun reports.

The footage consists of a approximately 5 minutes long video taken downtown Yangon, in the area where Nagai was shot. A person believed to be Nagai is seen lying on the ground, and after Burmese soldiers have scattered the demonstrators, one soldier is seen leaving the scene with what apperas to be a video camera.

“It seems reasonable to think the Burmese army confiscated it,” APF News president Toru Yamaji commented.
