Assassination at Yangon’s international airport


A prominent lawyer and member of Myanmar’s ruling party who had just returned from a government delegation trip to Indonesia  was shot dead along with a taxi driver outside Yangon’s international airport on Sunday.

Ko Ni, a member of Aung San Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy party, was gunned down as he got into a taxi outside arrivals around 5pm by an assassin who also killed the driver.

Ko Ni was the Supreme Court advocate for the NLD and a longstanding adviser to the country’s leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
