Tackling Egypt's rising crime wave

Candidates in the upcoming presidential election try to convince voters they will increase security.

    Campaigning in Egypt has finished in the run-up to the country's first presidential election since last year's revolution.

    There's now a 48-hour political silence before voting begins on Wednesday and the new president will be announced by the end of June.

    But as Rawya Rageh reports from the town of Shubra El Kheima just north of Cairo, crime is rising and has become one of the main election issues.
