My big deal is that I cannot actually figure out if it is talking about the death of the young girl and boy in the picture or two other persons.
Based on my perception, because the writer did not put “the” before “two protesters”, the deaths have nothing to do with these two young people captured in the picture. The writer just wrote “the death of two protesters” not “the death of the two protesters.” Is this correct?
