Egyptian photographer Ahmed Assem was in Cairo filming protests outside the offices of the country’s army when he was shot and killed. He captured the chilling moment on tape. A sniper turns and faces him and then the tape goes black. It’s not graphic, but may be disturbing to some viewers.
The exact circumstances of the 26-year-old's death have not been verified, but friends and colleagues have claimed the grainy footage shows him being killed.
“At around 6am, a man came into the media centre with a camera covered in blood and told us that one of our colleagues had been injured,” Ahmed Abu Zeid, of Assem’s newspaper, Al-Horia Wa Al-Adala, told the Daily Telegraph.
“Around an hour later, I received news that Ahmed had been shot by a sniper in the forehead while filming or taking pictures on top of the buildings around the incident.
