Egypt's retailers clash with illegal street traders
Egypt has been plunged into political turmoil and frequent disturbances since the revolution that ousted President Hosni Mubarak two years ago.

As many as a million of them are on the streets, leading to friction and even clashes with shopkeepers and others.
