Housing revolution needed in Egypt

Lack of affordable housing remains one of Egypt's most crucial problems.

    Hundreds of families, who were evicted from their homes in Egypt in January, are still living in tents while waiting to be moved into government housing as promised.

    The revolution in Egypt was about reclaiming peoples' dignity. The suffering of these homeless citizens means that the quest remains unfinished.
