'For fallen souls' - A survivor says Myanmar fight must go on
Ko Phyo, 24, who says he lost his leg from a soldier's bullet during protests against Myanmar's military coup, now adjusts to life as an amputee and single parent but sees the injury as a small sacrifice compared to those of the hundreds killed.

Ko Phyo, 24, a protester who lost one leg during an anti-coup protest, sits in his wheelchair at his home on the outskirts of Yangon, Myanmar, April 24, 2021. The bullet that hit Ko Phyo severed three arteries. The soldier who fired the shot removed it with a knife, and a local policeman he knew took him to a military hospital, a journey that took more than two hours, he said. "I started feeling the pain and I couldn't bear it. I told them to cut off my leg immediately. They cut it on the seventh day." REUTERS/Stringer SEARCH "PHYO YANGON" FOR THIS STORY.

Ko Phyo, 24, a protester who lost one leg during an anti-coup protest, shows a photograph of himself and his friends on his phone taken during an anti-coup protest, on the outskirts of Yangon, Myanmar, May 4, 2021. Ko Phyo says he joined the nationwide protest movement in the biggest city, Yangon, acting as a guard trying to protect demonstrators from security forces during daily pro-democracy marches and strikes. "We ran away because we didn't want to get arrested and beaten," he said, recalling a day in early March when he was cornered as police and a soldier advanced. "Then they started shooting, I was shot in the leg, and fell on the ground." REUTERS/Stringer SEARCH "PHYO YANGON" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES

Concern about the future of his son drove Ko Phyo to join the anti-junta protests and gave him motivation to recover faster and leave hospital after 12 days, he said. "All protesters out there are fighting for the next generations ... The military is supposed to protect its own people, but they are killing us instead." "We must keep fighting," Ko Phyo said.
