Egyptian photographer captures his own death on Camera

26 year old Egyptian freelance photographer, Ahmed Samir Assem (left), captured the moment he was shot dead by an Egyptian soldier (right). Ahmed was taking pictures outside the Republican Guard building in Cairo, where the ousted Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi is supposedly being held, when a sniper took aim and fired at him. It was the last photo Ahmed took before his camera went black. His camera was also the only one which filmed the entire incident from the first moment.

Ahmed was one of 51 people  killed on Monday July 8th when security forces opened fire on a large crowd that had camped outside the Republican Guard building.

Curiosity kills the cat they say, in such a delicate situation of that nature and this dude was still playing around and taking pictures, I don't justify the inhumane action by the soldier though. May he rest in peace.

This is really sad, what is happening to Egypt. A quite and safe society before the so called Arab spring has turned into a war torn country.

When your passion leads to your death...Tragic!
President Mohammed Morsi was democratically elected therefore,the military taking over the government is pure case of a Coup d'etat....doesn't matter if a large number of the people are pro-military! Peace to Egypt!
