''Taxi of knowledge'' encourages reading in Cairo

Books are being put in the back of 120 taxis in Cairo to encourage passengers to read and relax while they are travelling to their destination.

Organisers hope to expand the scheme to include more of the capital's taxis as well as taxis in other major cities.
