Egyptian sniper photographed at the moment he pulled the trigger killing the photographer

Shocking video emerged on Monday of an Egyptian photojournalist who filmed the moment of his own death when a sniper posed on a nearby rooftop unexpectedly turned his rifle on him.  The grainy footage shows an Egyptian solider aiming and shooting at Ahmed Samir Assem, before the film goes black.  The 26-year-old freelance photographer was filming outside the Republican Guard building in Cairo and was one of at least 50 people killed when security forces opened fire on a large crowd that had camped outside the building.

Egypt’s Al-Horia Wa Al-Adala newspaper told of the moment when the camera arrived at their headquarters:

“At around 6am, a man came into the media center with a camera covered in blood and told us that one of our colleagues had been injured.  Around an hour later, I received news that Ahmed had been shot by a sniper in the forehead while filming on top of the buildings around the incident.”

Watch the stunning video below.
