I don't have the full story yet but from what I have so far, it seems A Egyptian Secuity Officer
did not want to go with his colleagues and take to the street to arrest youth in demonstrations for speaking out for Palestine and what is happening in Gaza.
The officer took out his gun and shot himself I guess so that he would not have to go and arest people.
Daripada Abu Umarah iaitu al-Bara' bin 'Azib radhiallahu anhuma, katanya: "Kita semua diperintah oleh Rasulullah s.a.w. untuk melakukan tujuh perkara, iaitu meninjau orang sakit, mengikuti janazah, menentasymitkan orang yang bersin, menolong orang yang lemah, membantu orang yang teraniaya, meratakan salam dan melaksanakan sumpah."
