ICYMI – “Everything will be ok”
The death of 19-year-old Ma Kyal Sin, known to her friends as Angel, gathered the world’s attention. Wearing a black T-shirt with words EVERYTHING WILL BE OK, she was shot in the neck while running with other protesters from gun fire. But she had known it might not be OK- leaving details of her blood group, a contact number and a request to donate her body in the event of her death.
Wednesday marked the “bloodiest day” so far since Feb 1 coup, with at least 38 protesters killed and scores more injured after authorities opened fire on crowds.
