El-Housseini abu-Deif died at a hospital in Cairo after a week-long coma from being shot in the head during clashes.

Protesters numbering in the hundreds of thousands took to the streets in Egypt after President Morsi granted himself near-absolute power last month. This week, VOMENA talks with Egyptian journalist Ahmad Shokr about the quickly-evolving political landscape in Egypt, and who the key players are. Also, journalists and activists mourned the death of photojournalist El-Husseini abu-Deif, who died yesterday after being shot in the head during clashes last week.
