GoPro footage of the protests and clashes that stirred up outside of the US Embassy after an Anti-Islamic film went viral.


These clips are from three of these days, closing with the morning of 15 September, when police clamped down on the uprising with force by destroying all stalls and tents in Tahrir Square and arresting scores of protestors.

Equipment: GoPro 2 mounted on a Canon DMarkII DSLR, 24-70mm 2.8 lens.
