Today, January 24th marked the eve of the anniversary of the 2011 Egyptian uprising against Hosni Mubarak and many people took to the street to stage a peaceful march. But that peaceful march turned bloody when a female activist was shockingly gunned down by a police officer in central Cairo.
The female political activist was shot in the head by a police in Cairo. The woman was hit by birdshot ammunition, a supposedly non-lethal alternative to shot gun pellets.
A health ministry spokesman said Shaima al-Sabbagh died of birdshot wounds, which fellow protesters said were fired by police to disperse the march. Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahlab said al-Sabbagh’s death was being investigated and vowed that ‘whoever committed a mistake will be punished, whoever he may be.’
