In pictures: Al-Hosseini Abu Deif funeral

Slain journalist's funeral procession passes Press Syndicate before arriving at the Omar Makram Mosque in Tahrir Square

The funeral of journalist Al-Hosseini Abu Deif took place on Wednesday night.

Abu Deif received a shotgun shell to the skull as he covered clashes outside Ithadiya Presidential Palace last week.

A funeral procession went from Al-Qasr Al-Aini hospital through to the headquarters of the press syndicate and finally to Omar Makram Mosque in Tahrir Square.

His friends claimed on Sunday that he was “assassinated” by the Muslim Brotherhood for documenting the groups’ assaults on protesters during the clashes.
