Egyptian journalist Adel al-Gogary, Editor-in-Chief of al-Anwar newspaper and chairman of the Arab Center for Printing and Publishing, died on Wednesday on air while being hosted by the Iraqi al-Hadath TV, according to the UAE’s al-Bayan daily.

Gogary was defending the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad within a program entitled Neqat Sakhena (Hot Spots). During his argument with another anti-Assad studio guest, he was exposed to a stroke.

Gogary was rushed to the hospital, where he died shortly after.
