Egyptian abattoirs in cattle cruelty scandal

Animal rights activists say slaughterhouses have not been carrying out 'humane kills'.

    Animal rights activists are accusing Egyptian slaughterhouses of cruelty to cattle.

    A recent video showing livestock being abused caused Australia to suspend its live exports to the country.

    The Egyptian government, however, denies the accusations, and has carried out inspections of abattoirs alleged to have been involved.

    Al Jazeera's Nicole Johnston reports from Ismailia, Egypt.
