Disputes hit Egypt real estate boom

    Egypt has been experiencing a boom time in its construction and real estate industries. But a land sale dispute involving an ambitious project could tarnish the country's image and put off foreign investors.

    However, the Egyptian government has been quick to come to its rescue.
