26 year old Egyptian freelance photographer, Ahmed Samir Assem, captured the moment he was shot dead by an Egyptian soldier. 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.
