The Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan (FCCJ) deplores the killing in
Yangon of Kenji Nagai, a journalist with Tokyo's APF News, and condemns
the use of violence by Myanmar security forces.
The FCCJ urges the authorities to respect the human rights of
journalists in the country and their right to report.
In recent days the world has been shocked by the video and photos coming
out of Myanmar, and it is thanks to brave people like Kenji Nagai that
we have been able to see them.
The FCCJ hopes that an investigation will be carried out into the death
of Mr. Nagai and those responsible be brought to justice.
The FCCJ offers its sincere condolences to Mr. Nagai's family, friends
