Egypt and the USA

Listen in pop-out player

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?
