He was 27. Al-Sayed had filmed the uprising in Baba Amr, a district within the city of Homs, which had broken away from government rule in 2011. Al-Sayed used the site Bambuser, which hosted live video streams directly from his camera and broadcasted the footage to millions of Internet viewers. His footage was used by major news networks that have been barred from entering Syria during the protests, including Al Jazeera, CNN, and BBC World."
