The funeral of the late artist Mahmoud Yassin took place a short while ago, from the Police Mosque in Sheikh Zayed, after his death, on Wednesday, after a long struggle with illness, at the age of 79.
Shahira, the wife of “Yassin”, did not control herself upon the arrival of the body, and went into a severe crying fit. She was also unable to stand. She appeared sitting on a chair, next to her her son “Amr” and her grandson “Mahmoud”.
Shahira remained next to the body for more than two hours, then got out of the car when the funeral prayer began, but she fell unconscious on the ground, and after she woke up, she kept chanting with a gaunt voice “Oh my love”, amid the tears of many.
Several days before his death, the artist Mahmoud Yassin had contracted pneumonia, and he was subsequently transferred to the Maadi Military Hospital, in complete secrecy, until he died there.
