CAIRO — "Prison doesn’t kill but loneliness does. I need your support in order not to die. I tried to resist on my own … so that I get out the person you’ve known; but I can’t take it anymore." An Egyptian artist wrote these words a few months before he died in the early hours of May 2 in a Cairo prison.
Independent filmmaker and photographer Shady Habash's gloomy words have seen light through his friends and are providing people of a reminder of his ordeal.
