Egypt's Christians face tough times after pig massacre...

In the half-light of dawn, the new day in Cairo is greeted with the clatter of dustbins.

The Zabaleen (Egyptian Arabic for "garbage people") are beginning their rounds. 

Since the age of eight, Magdi Mosaad has eked out a meagre living recycling Cairo's waste. 

Each morning he scurries around the apartment blocks, emptying the contents of festering bins into the canvas bag strapped to his back. He looks like a bee storing honey. 

He has done this job for 14 hours a day, for 30 years of his life. More...
