From Our Own Correspondent - Egypt and the USA
Tom Dinham runs into a spontaneous gunfight in a Giza market, a sign of Egypt's spreading disorder; Linda Pressly's in Florida's "Miracle Village", housing scores of sex offenders
Owen Bennett Jones presents dispatches from correspondents and writers around the world. As disorder spreads in Egypt, and opinion on the country's leadership becomes ever more polarised, Tom Dinham witnesses an alarming incident in Cairo. Out shopping in a Giza market, he and a friend run into a spontaneous gunfight - in which, it later emerged, several people died. It seems the risk of violence is rising along with the political temperature. Linda Pressly's also in contested territory, as she visits Florida's "Miracle Village" - a small and apparently idyllic settlement which in fact houses scores of people who've been convicted of sex offences, and are now forbidden from living elsewhere by local laws. Is it a safe place to be?
