CAIRO: Mohamed Fathy, a member of Tamarod and of Abdel Fatah al-Sisi‘s presidential campaign, was shot outside his house in Nahya, Giza early Monday, according to al-Masry al-Youm.

Fathy was killed while carrying documents containing the names of youths and their polling stations, according to Mohamed Hassan, Tamarod’s coordinator in Giza, Al-Masry al-Youm reported.

Tamarod’s official website condemned Fathy’s death and accused the Muslim Brotherhood of killing him. Eman el-Mahdy, the movement’s official spokesperson, described him as “a martyr of patriotism and national duty.”

The official spokesperson of the forensics authority announced in a press statement that Fathy died from a gunshot to the abdomen, Al-Watan reported.

The spokesperson said the type of weapon used to kill Fathy was not determined, adding that a final report would be sent to prosecution within two weeks.

Member of Tamarod in Fayoum, Mohamed Yassin, had accused the Brotherhood of threatening his life. He issued a police report to document the threats, said al-Ahram Digital on May 7, 2014.

The coordinator of Tamarod in Suez,  Mostafa al-Suweisy, had accused members of April 6 Youth Movement and the Revolutionary Communists Movement of threatening to kill him through mobile phone messages and on Facebook “for his supportive stance towards June30,” Al-Badeel news website said on Jan. 1, 2014.

Suweisy issued a police report accusing three members of the previously mentioned movements of attempted murder after they clashed with him and attacked him using mêlée weapons, causing injuries that required more than 21 days of recovery, added Al-Badeel.
