Egyptian protester describes being shot

Hashim Rashwan, who was thought to be killed during anti-coup protest in Egypt, explains what he had been through.

    It was one of the most memorable images of the past week: an Egyptian protester standing in front of a line of tanks waving his arms in the air before he is shot in the stomach and leg.

    Ahmed Hashim Rashwan, who was protesting against the country's military coup, was thought to have been killed in the incident, which took place last Friday in the northeastern city of Ismailia.

    His injuries, however, did not prove to be fatal. He spoke to Al Jazeera, describing what happened to him.
