Mya Thwe Thwe Khaing was shot in the head just before her 20th birthday, the first of at least three people to die in the protests.

Thousands lined the streets to honour her, some making the three-fingered salutes used by demonstrators.

The military overthrew the elected government earlier this month.

Promises to hold early elections have failed to satisfy protesters, who are also seeking the release of the elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi and other members of her National League for Democracy (NLD) party.
