A British cameraman is among at least 149 killed as an operation to clear two camps filled with thousands of protestors loyal to ousted Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi descended into violent chaos.

Mick Deane was part of a Sky News team in Egypt reporting on a security force operation to raid the camps in the capital Cairo when violence broke out.

Security forces are said to have opened fire on mostly unarmed protestors with machine guns during the operation which began shortly after 7am local time.

Although the total number of dead in the clashes is unconfirmed, burned corpses have been seen on the streets which resemble a war zone.

Interim Egyptian leaders have declared a state of emergency and imposed an overnight curfew.

Mr Deane, 61, had worked for Sky for 15 years based in Jerusalem and Washington.

Sky head of news John Ryley described his as an 'inspiring mentor to many' and a brilliant journalist. The rest of the Sky team were unharmed.

He said: 'Everyone at Sky News is shocked and saddened by Mick's death.

'He was a talented and experienced journalist who had worked with Sky News for many years.

'The loss of a much-loved colleague will be deeply felt across Sky News. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and family. We will give them our full support at this extremely difficult time.'

The network's foreign affairs editor Tim Marshall called Mick 'a friend, brave as a lion but what a heart… what a human being'.

He added: 'Micky was humorous in a dry way, he was wise and when you're on the road with small teams, people like that are diamonds to be with.

'Our hearts go out to his family. He died doing what he'd done so brilliantly for decades.'

Father-of-two Mr Deane had been working with Middle East correspondent Sam Kiley when he was shot.

He received treatment for his injuries but died soon afterwards, said a Sky News statement.

Prime Minister David Cameron said on Twitter: 'I am saddened to hear of the death of cameraman Mick Deane, covering Egyptian violence.

'My thoughts are with his family and @SkyNews team.'

The Muslim Brotherhood has pledged to "bring down Egypt's military coup" using peaceful means - as the number of people killed in clashes reportedly rose to more than 340.

The group, which backs ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi, made the statement as a month-long state of emergency was declared in the country.

I cant see an end to this.

its not that long ago that a lot of us here were commenting on how people power over there were incredible, and got rid of Morsi, but Morsi supporters are denied the same opportunity to demonstrate like the anti Morsi supporters had.

I don't know whos right or wrong in all of this, but it sure is getting outa shape.
