Not a photographer is killed in Egypt

A young American killed during violent clashes in crisis-hit Egypt has been named as student Andrew Pochter.

Pochter, 21, died in Alexandria on Friday 28 June, during violence between police and protesters angry at the country’s hard-line Islamist President, Mohammed Mursi.

Pochter was a student at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio. He was in Egypt working as an intern for US-based NGO called AMIDEAST.

According to hospital sources, Pochter was shot dead. But local media said he was stabbed to death while taking pictures.

His family were reported to come from Maryland, but other sources claimed Pochter was from Chevy Chase.
