A funeral was held for a teenager who was killed in Myanmar. 17-year-old Kyaw Min Watt was struck in the head point-blank with a rubber bullet while he was riding his motorbike. That bullet allegedly was fired by military forces. As the teen’s coffin was taken to a crematorium, people angrily denounced Myanmar’s military government. It’s just one of many dramatic scenes emerging from the southeast Asian nation since the February 1st military coup.
