Supporters hold signs during a funeral ceremony for slain journalist Par Gyi at the Yaway cemetery in...
Supporters hold signs during a funeral ceremony for slain journalist Par Gyi at the Yaway cemetery in Yangon, November 7, 2014. Myanmar authorities exhumed the body on Wednesday of a journalist killed in military custody, and one rights activist said the body bore what he thought were marks of torture. Freelance journalist Par Gyi was detained by the army on Sept. 30 after photographing clashes between the military and the rebel Democratic Karen Benevolent Army (DKBA). The Myanmar-based Assistance Association for Political Prisoners (AAPP) says he was killed on Oct. 4. The AAPP has disputed a statement by the military that Par Gyi was shot when he tried to steal a gun from a soldier and escape after being detained because he was a member of an ethnic Karen rebel organisation. President Thein Sein last week responded to calls by rights groups and the United States government and ordered Myanmar's National Human Rights Commission to carry out an investigation into Par Gyi's death. The sign reads, "There needs to be an investigation into the death of the slain journalist Par Gyi." REUTERS/Soe Zeya Tun (MYANMAR - Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST MEDIA OBITUARY)
