Cross camel owners bring Cairo to a halt

"Traffic came to a standstill and the streets were blocked on Wednesday in a protest that saw 400 camels and horses clog the Cairo avenue leading to the Egyptian pyramids. Camel and horse owners who make money offering pyramid visitors rides on their animals took to the streets to protest being chased out of the tourist site by the tourism police."
