Row over Egyptian lake earmarked for new tourist resort
Environmentalists in Egypt are calling for the country's new rulers to cancel a major tourist development in an area famous for its natural beauty, history, geology and fossils.
The development in the area of Fayyoum, south-west of Cairo, was agreed in the final years of President Mubarak's rule.
Critics say there was no consultation, a classic example of the way business was done under the ousted ruler.
