Demonstrators in the streets of Alexandria, Egypt, today
Youth Journalism International Senior Photographer Yasser Alaa of Alexandria, Egypt, took to the streets today, with his camera, to capture images from the pro-democracy demonstrations.
He expressed apologies that his photos weren’t better, but he was having trouble getting any closer because of the tear gas. We’re just glad he’s safe. Please check back as there are more photos and reporting coming from YJI’s impressive Egyptian students.
