Mohamed Meselhy Ibrahim Abdel Dayem

Mohamed, 40, was born in a village in the Menoufia Governorate.

In the summer of 2013, just before the demonstrations, he returned to Egypt for his annual leave from his job in Saudi Arabia with his family (his wife, son and daughter).

He refused to return to Saudi Arabia at the end of his leave because of the political instability in Egypt and was hoping to see it settled. Mohamed started to take part in the anti-coup demonstrations after July 3rd and frequently joined the protesters in Rabaa al-Adawiya Square. He was at Rabaa al-Adawiya Square on the 14th of August–the day that would become known as the Rabaa Massacre. He went to support those protesting that day, especially his relatives that were partaking in the demonstrations.

The area was besieged by security forces and when Mohamed tried to enter the square he received a bullet to the right eye from a sniper. He was pronounced dead immediately and his body was later transferred to Dar Al-Hekma Hospital. He was buried the next Thursday (15-08-2013) in his home village.
