According to Al Arabiya, the incident took place during clashes between supporters and opponents of ousted President Mohammed Morsi.

The Middle East news agency writes that the perpetrators are Islamist supporters of Morsi.

In the video, four young men are shown on the roof of a building in Alexandria, appearing to seek safety atop a high wall on the roof. Other activists can be seen congregating on the roof below them, one of whom is fully bearded and holding a large black al-Qaeda flag in his back pocket.

Alexandria-Roof-protesters thrown offOne of the young men was killed; he was identified as Hamada Badr and activists say he was celebrating Mursi’s ouster when he came into encounter with Muslim Brotherhood supporters.

“Do you know the teen that they killed and disfigured his body and threw from the fifth floor is only 19 and four days,” Mohammed Badr, father of the killed teen, told el-Watan News in an interview published Saturday.

“All he was guilty of was that he was on the roof of the building, celebrating the ouster of Mursi. But the Brotherhood waged a war against whoever was celebrating Mursi’s departure!” Badr said.

He said during a Brotherhood protest, his son went out and threw stones at them. They reacted violently and killed his son, he said.
