Cape Town – A Sky TV cameraman has been killed during coverage of clashes between Egypt’s security forces and pro-Morsi protesters in Cairo, a report says.

He was the second media worker reported killed in one day. Earlier, Gulf News confirmed that its Egypt correspondent Habiba Abdel Aziz had been killed by sniper fire in Cairo.
