Egyptian slum-dwellers fail to see change

Many suffering from lack of basic needs say interim government has failed to help them 15 months after revolution.

    Millions of slum-dwellers across Egypt have long suffered from a lack of basic needs, including running water, electricity and education.

    They had hoped that the revolution that deposed the government of Hosni Mubarak would bring essential changes to their communities. 

    But 15 months after Mubarak fell from power, many say the new interim government has failed to improve their lives.

    Al Jazeera's Jamal Elshayyal reports from Tabyit Hoda, an Egyptian slum district, where locals voiced doubts that the country's upcoming elections would usher change.
