Sky News cameraman, Dubai newspaper reporter killed in Egypt violence

CAIRO (AP) - Several journalists have been caught up in the violence that has raged in Cairo and elsewhere in Egypt today.

According to their employers, a cameraman for the British broadcaster Sky News and a newspaper reporter based in Dubai were killed.

Sky news says Mick Deane was shot and wounded while covering the violent breakup of protest camps in Cairo. It said he was treated for his injuries but died a short time later. The rest of his crew wasn't hurt.

The Gulf News says journalist Habiba Ahmed Abd Elaziz was shot and killed near a mosque in Cairo as security forces moved in on a sit-in by supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi. The newspaper says she had been on annual leave and was not on assignment at the protest.

Other journalists were among the injured. Reuters says one of its photographers was shot in the leg. An Associated Press photographer working near the mosque was hit in the back of the neck by two birdshot pellets. The photographer received medical care and later returned to work.
