As Egypt struggles to rebuild its tourism industry following the turmoil of last year's revolution, tour guides have taken to the streets of Cairo to protest at what they say is a lack of security at key tourist spots.

They claim that unlicensed vendors are resorting to harassment and intimidation of tour guides and visitors.
