GAMBIER — Kenyon student Andrew Pochter ’15 was killed in Alexandria, Egypt, on Friday, June 28.

Pochter, 21, of Chevy Chase, Md., died during clashes between opponents and supporters of President Mohamed Morsi, according to U.S. Embassy officials.

Pochter was an intern at AMIDEAST, an American non-profit organization engaged in international education, training and development activities in the Middle East and North Africa. The AMIDEAST internship is not a Kenyon program. An appreciation of Pochter’s life will be shared at a later time.
