Sky News cameraman Mick Deane has been shot and killed in Egypt this morning.
The 61-year-old had worked for Sky for 15 years, based in Washington and then Jerusalem.
He was part of Sky’s team covering the violence in Cairo, which was headed up by Sky’s Middle East Correspondent Sam Kiley. The rest of the team are unhurt.
“Everyone at Sky News is shocked and saddened by Mick’s death,” said John Ryley, the Head of Sky News.
“He was a talented and experienced journalist who had worked with Sky News for many years.
“The loss of a much-loved colleague will be deeply felt across Sky News. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and family. We will give them our full support at this extremely difficult time.”
