Ahmed Samir Assem was killed in the line of fire and he has the video of the sniper shooting him-- an Egyptian army sniper to be exact. Bloggers recount this sad story caught on tape and honor Ahmed by sharing his past photos.
"A sniper silenced Ahmed Assem el-Senousy, but his killing has only amplified today's tragic events," said CPJ's Middle East and North Africa Coordinator Sherif Mansour. "Egypt's path to peace and freedom depends on authorities respecting the rule of law and basic human rights for all people."
