Shocking footage has captured the moment an Egyptian photographer filmed his own death through his lenses.

The grainy footage shows an Egyptian solider aiming and shooting at Ahmed Samir Assem, before the film goes black.


The 26-year-old photojournalist was shot dead on Monday as he took photos outside the Republican Guard building in Cairo, where some believe the ousted president Mohamed Morsi is being held.

He was one of at least 51 people killed when security forces opened fire on a large crowd that had camped outside.


Mr Assam, a freelance photographer was working for Egypt's Al-Horia Wa Al-Adala newspaper.


'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,' said Ahmed Abu Zeid, the culture editor of Mr Assem’s newspaper 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.
