Refugees struggle in Egypt's 'Little Syria'

Many Syrians escape violence to reach city of Giza, near Cairo, with little cash and a hard road ahead.

    The United Nations estimate that around 100,000 Syrian refugees have fled to Egypt since the uprising in their country began in March 2011.

    Tens of thousands of the refugees live and work in Giza, in an area now called "Little Syria". Many arrive with little money and are struggling to pay for food and rent.
