An Egyptian photojournalist was killed, three were wounded with gunfire and six were arrested while covering the third anniversary of the start of the country's uprising that ousted longtime autocrat Hosni Mubarak, their union said Tuesday.Since Morsi's overthrow last July, at least five journalists have been killed, 45 assaulted, and 11 news outlets raided, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists.Three journalists working for Al-Jazeera's English channel have also been held since Dec. 29, with one of them spending long hours in solitary confinement. Egypt has seen the ouster of two presidents, the rise and fall of the Islamists, and the return of the military to politics with the near-certain nomination of army chief Field Marshal Abdel-Fatah el-Sissi, in upcoming presidential elections.
