A young woman has become the first protester to die in the anti-coup demonstrations in Myanmar after she was shot in the head.
Mya Thwe Thwe Khaing, 20, was injured earlier last week when police tried to disperse protesters using water cannon, rubber bullets and live rounds.
Her wound was consistent with one from live ammunition, rights groups say.
Myanmar has seen days of protests following a coup which overthrew Aung San Suu Kyi's elected government.
The hospital in the capital Nya Pyi Taw confirmed her death at 11:00 local time (04:30 GMT), the BBC understands. A member of the funeral committee told BBC Burmese that funeral arrangements were being made and more details would be released.
"We will look for justice and move forward," a doctor told AFP news agency, adding that staff had faced immense pressure since she was taken to their intensive care unit.
Myanmar coup: What is happening and why?
The shooting of a young protester
The victim's brother told news agency Reuters that he had "nothing to say", adding that he felt "really sad".
Authorities said they would investigate the case, said Reuters.
Mya Thwe Thwe Khaing, who turned 20 after she was shot, had been on life support since taken to hospital on 9 February.
She had taken part in a protest in the South-east Asian nation which saw police use water cannon against protesters who refused to retreat.
According to BBC Burmese, who spoke to an unnamed medical officer shortly after she was brought to the hospital, she suffered a serious head injury.
Why are people protesting in Myanmar?
Myanmar is now in a year-long state of emergency, after the military seized power following a general election which saw Ms Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy (NLD) win by a landslide.
The military claim the election results are fraudulent, and demand a rerun of the vote.
Power has been handed to commander-in-chief Min Aung Hlaing. Ms Suu Kyi is under house arrest, accused of possessing illegal walkie-talkies and violating the country's Natural Disaster Law.
Protesters are calling for her release, along with the release of other NLD members. The country is now seeing some of the largest demonstrations since the so-called Saffron Revolution in 2007.
Clashes have taken place between security officers and protesters, and the military has also been blocking the internet in a bid to stifle dissent.
Myanmar - the basics
Myanmar, also known as Burma, was long considered a pariah state while under the rule of an oppressive military junta from 1962 to 2011
A gradual liberalisation began in 2010, leading to free elections in 2015 and the installation of a government led by veteran opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi the following year
In 2017, a deadly crackdown by Myanmar's army on Rohingya Muslims sent more than half a million fleeing across the border into Bangladesh, in what the UN later called a "textbook example of ethnic cleansing"
Aung San Suu Kyi and her government were overthrown in an army coup on 1 February following a landslide NLD win in November's elections
People have taken to the streets across Myanmar to protest against a coup by the armed forces.
Police have responded with water cannon, rubber bullets and live ammunition.
The country's elected leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, has been detained along with members of her party.
Where is Myanmar?
Myanmar, also known as Burma, is in South East Asia and neighbours Thailand, Laos, Bangladesh, China and India.
It has a population of about 54 million, most of whom are Burmese speakers, although other languages are also spoken. The biggest city is Yangon (Rangoon) but the capital is Nay Pyi Taw.
The main religion is Buddhism. There are many ethnic groups in the country, including Rohingya Muslims.
The country gained independence from Britain in 1948. It was ruled by the armed forces from 1962 until 2011, when a new government began ushering in a return to civilian rule.
Why is Myanmar also known as Burma?
The ruling military changed the country's name from Burma to Myanmar in 1989. The two words mean the same thing but Myanmar is the more formal version.
Some countries, including the UK, initially refused to use the name as a way of denying the regime's legitimacy.
But use of "Myanmar" has become increasingly common and in 2016 Ms Suu Kyi said it did not matter which name was used.
What has happened now, and why?
The military is now back in charge and has declared a year-long state of emergency.
It seized control on 1 February following a general election which Ms Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy (NLD) party won by a landslide.
The armed forces had backed the opposition, who were demanding a rerun of the vote, claiming widespread fraud.
The election commission said there was no evidence to support these claims.
The coup was staged as a new session of parliament was set to open.
Ms Suu Kyi is under house arrest and has been charged with possessing illegally imported walkie-talkies. Many other NLD officials have also been detained.
Who is in charge now?
Power has been handed over to commander-in-chief Min Aung Hlaing.
He has long wielded significant political influence, successfully maintaining the power of the Tatmadaw - Myanmar's military - even as the country transitioned towards democracy.
He has received international condemnation and sanctions for his alleged role in the military's attacks on ethnic minorities.
In his first public comments after the coup, Gen Hlaing sought to justify the takeover, saying the military was on the side of the people and would form a "true and disciplined democracy".
The military says it will hold a "free and fair" election once the state of emergency is over.
