A young woman has become the first protester to die in the anti-coup demonstrations in Myanmar after she was shot in the head.

Mya Thwe Thwe Khaing, 20, was injured earlier last week when police tried to disperse protesters using water cannon, rubber bullets and live rounds.

Her wound was consistent with one from live ammunition, rights groups say.

Myanmar has seen days of protests following a coup which overthrew Aung San Suu Kyi’s elected government.
