MICK  DEANE

*This journalist is a candidate for addition to the memorial.

News Organization: SKY NEWS

Died: 2013

Location: EGYPT

Helicopters circled overhead and clouds of tear gas enveloped the streets of Cairo. As British cameraman Mick Deane raised his camera to film clashes between security forces and supporters of former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, he was shot by a sniper and killed. Deane was 61. For nearly 40 years, he covered wars and major world events for CNN and Britain’s Sky News. Described as “courageous but careful, never rash,” he filmed China’s deadly crackdown on the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests and reported undercover in North Korea. Deane was one of six journalists killed in 2013 in Egypt, where violence between police and protesters made it one of the deadliest countries in the world for journalists.
