Blog Post: A Courageous Woman Tells of Her Fiancé’s Death on Egypt’s ‘Bloody Sunday’

After a long march from Shubra, Viviane Magdi and her fiancé Michael Mosad finally reached their destination at the State TV building in Maspero in downtown Cairo where a mass crowd of demonstrators had gathered. Upon arrival, however, the protest that Michael and Viviane had joined took an unexpected turn.

“The protest was wonderful at first,” Viviane told the BBC through a translator. “We felt united. There were Muslims and Christians. People were chanting and marching together… But when we reached Maspero the atmosphere had changed.”

Above the chants for freedom and the end to military rule, the couple could hear screams and the crackle of gun fire rising from among the demonstrators into the evening air.
