Ahmed El-Masry was on his way to work on 14 August, passing through Mostafa Mahmoud Square, when he, according to the movement, was accidently caught-up in clashes and wounded "by Interior Ministry forces." 
 
On 14 August, the police forcibly dispersed two pro-Morsi sit-ins, staged by supporters of deposed President Mohamed Morsi in Al-Nahda Square in Giza and at Rabaa El-Adawiya Mosque in Nasr City, resulting in the deaths of over 600 civilians and over 40 police officers.
 
In the aftermath of the crackdown, violence raged nationwide and protesters attempted to set up a new sit-in at Mostafa Mahmoud Square, prompting further clashes with security forces. The death toll of the 14 - 21 August period is reported to have surpassed one thousand in total.
 
El-Masry, who has been hospitalised in Qasr Al-Ainy Hospital, underwent several surgeries, the last of which was on Saturday before he died.
