Egyptian Bedouins, a nomadic ethnic group in the Sinai Peninsula, lead a traditional lifestyle not far from the bustling holiday resorts that are being developed in south of the country.

The Bedouins say that they have been increasingly marginalised from the development projects as the Egyptian government denied them their share of profits from the country's lucrative tourism industry.

They also claim that the authorities employ excessive force against them, saying that between 1,000 and 3,000 Bedouins are held in Egyptian jails.
