Mohamed "Mo" Amin (29 August 1943 – 23 November 1996) was a Kenyan photojournalist. Amin's photos along with Michael Buerk's reporting of the 1984 Ethiopian famine brought international attention to the crisis and eventually helped start the charity wave that resulted in Live Aid concerts. Amin died in November 1996 when his flight Ethiopian Airlines Flight 961 was hijacked and crashed into the ocean near Grande Comore.
