Agence France-Presse photographer Asif Hasan was injured by demonstrators during a protest in Karachi on 21 September against the anti-Islamic video “Innocence of Muslims.”

One of his colleagues, Hasan Mansoor, told Reporters Without Borders that Hasan was injured while resisting protesters who were trying to grab his camera.

“The demonstrators took Asif’s lens, but he resisted and did not let them get the camera,” Mansoor said. The photographer received injuries to the hand, shoulder and ear. His motorcycle was also taken but he later found it abandoned.
