A man holds a picture of 19-year-old Kyal Sin, also known as Angel, during her burial in Mandalay, Myanmar. Authorities released a death certificate saying the bullet that killed her didn’t match the caliber used by police, that it came from the wrong direction for security forces to be responsible, and blamed protesters for her death. However, local news reports and social media accounts said security forces were firing live rounds, March 4, 2021.
