The first award commemorating slain Japanese video journalist Kenji Nagai will be presented later this month to a female reporter from Myanmar who reported on an area of the country that was devastated by a cyclone last year, the Burma Media Association has said.

Eint Khaing Oo, 24, was detained while interviewing the victims of the disaster last year and is now serving a two-year prison term with hard labor after being found guilty of allegedly causing confusion by reporting or passing on rumors, according to the Oslo-based association and Tokyo-based news agency APF News Inc.
