Video: Kenji Nagai murdered, shot at point blank range

The National Press Photographers Association has more on the murder of 50-year-old AFP contract photographer Kenji Nagai by Burmese police. Yes, murdered. A heart-wrenching video on Japanese television shows a soldier or police officer aiming a gun at Nagai and shooting him, point blank, capturing Nagai falling to the ground. "A loud crack is audible as a soldier points his rifle at the prone figure before launching himself at the dispersing crowd of protesters," reports The Times of London.

"Something deplorable is happening there," said Japanese PM Yasuo Fukuda. "We must consider what on earth we should do to resolve the situation."
