Pro-democracy protesters in Alexandria, Egypt, on November 21

Yasser Alaa, a senior photographer for Youth Journalism International from Alexandria, Egypt, ventured out with his camera today to take pictures from the protests in the coastal city.

He braved police, who at the least fired rubber bullets and tear gas at the demonstrators. He asked us to convey his apologies that his photos aren’t better, but the working conditions were especially difficult.
