Bassem Sabry 1982-2014

UPDATE: This young man who died far too soon wrote this on turning 30: "Eleutheria (Almost Everything I Have Leaned in My Life)" Let it stand as a reminder of our, and most of all, Egypt's loss.

Egyptian columnist and blogger Bassem Sabry, whose columns have often appeared at Al-Monitor and Huffington Post in this country, has reportedly died from a fall from a balcony after falling into a diabetic coma.

I knew him only through his work and social media, but this is a loss for analysis of Egypt.
