Cairo tourism smothered by ongoing unrest

Around 50 people have been killed in a week of unrest across the country, in the latest blow to the country's tourism industry.

Tour guides at the Egyptian Museum, located next to Tahrir Square, say the number of visitors has gone down from 5,000 a day before the revolution, to just a couple of hundred now.
