Mahmoud Khaled, the young man who was injured after a diplomatic car ran over him on 28 January, the infamous “Friday of Anger,” died early today.

The funeral will be held at the Omar Makram Mosque after the afternoon prayer and will be followed by a march to Tahrir Square.

The video of a white diplomatic car running over protesters went viral during the revolution. The car was believed to have belonged to the US embassy, however the embassy later revealed that the car belongs to them but was stolen and that they were not involved in the accident.

... and disgusting! I dont care if you are a diplomat or not and are entitled to whatever immunity exists under the Sun - if the car was stolen why was this not reported to police? How do you steal a US diplomatic Car in Central Cairo on a day of high alert - ay kalam tab3an! The US has to answer to this and stop its hypocrisy - a human life is a human life mahminkan! Rest in Peace Martyr.
