Egypt's disabled demand assistance

Dozens of disabled campaigners protest outside parliament, demanding government help.



    Egypt has an estimated eight million people with special needs, many of them say they are denied services like housing and transport.

    That makes life particularly difficult for those living in the bustling capital, Cairo.

    Dozens of disabled campaigners staged a protest outside the Egyptian Parliament, demanding more assistance from the government.
