Sky News Camera Operator Mick Deane Killed in Egypt

Longtime Sky News camera operator Mick Deane was shot and killed in Cairo, Egypt this morning.

He was there with his team covering the violence in the capital city, as Egyptian security forces cleared public squares of supporters of ousted president Morsi. As noted by former CNN executive Eason Jordan, Deane was a camera operator for CNN based in Rome back in the 1980s.

“Mick was part of a Sky News team reporting on the disturbances in the city with Middle East Correspondent Sam Kiley when he was shot and wounded,” Sky News said in a statement. “Despite receiving medical treatment for his injuries, he died shortly afterwards.”

Sky News has more on Deane, here.

Over a hundred people are said to have been killed in the violence in the last 24 hours, including a few other journalists.

Egypt has become a dangerous place for reporters in recent months. A BBC correspondent was shot in the face by shotgun pellets in July, resulting in emergency surgery.

CNN’s Arwa Damon is also in Cairo covering the protests, and had to duck for cover during a report as automatic gunfire screamed past their location.
