Squatters struggle on in Cairo

Three months after a major fire swept through the Qalaat el-Kabsh shantytown in old Cairo, hundreds of people are still without homes. The blaze was started by a faulty gas clinder, but residents also report that the first muncipal fire trucks didn't arrive until three hours after the alarm had been raised. Egypt Guide has the details.
