A rescued schoolgirl, among 279 girls kidnapped last week from the Jangebe Government Girls Science Secondary School, reacts after arriving home after the five-day ordeal in Jangebe, Zamfara, Nigeria March 3, 2021. The Jangebe abduction was the third mass school kidnapping in northern Nigeria since December. The kidnappings for ransom are the latest manifestation of years of festering banditry that has rendered large swathes of northwest Nigeria lawless. REUTERS/Afolabi Sotunde

Angel, bottom left, takes cover with other protesters after police opened fire to disperse an anti-coup protest in Mandalay, Myanmar, March 3, 2021. "Everything will be OK," read the 19-year-old's T-shirt. But she had known it might not be OK -- leaving details of her blood group, a contact number and a request to donate her body in the event of her death. Angel, also known as Kyal Sin, was killed by a shot to the head on the streets of Mandalay as she fought for a tentative democracy in which she had proudly voted for the first time last year, an election overturned by the Feb. 1 coup.

Besides the dead and injured among 25 people crammed into the SUV that collided with the truck, 19 others were found huddled near a second SUV that caught fire in the same area just north of the border, the officials said.

Pro-democracy activist Joshua Wong looks on upon arriving at Lai Chi Kok Reception Centre after he remained in custody over the national security law charge in Hong Kong, China March 2, 2021. A judge kept 47 pro-democracy activists in custody after four days of bail hearings in a case that has drawn global concern that Beijing is using a national security law to crush dissent. The case is the most sweeping use yet of the city\u0027s new national security law, which imposes punishments of up to life in prison for serious charges including subversion. REUTERS/Tyrone Siu
