Al-Jazeera Video: Egypt food subsidies face criticism - 31 Oct 09
"For 50 years, Egypt's government has subsidised basic food items for the poor.
Today, 65 million Egyptians benefit from the subsidies.
But there is growing criticism that the government is not doing enough to guarantee that the cheap food rations are distributed to those who really need them.
Critics say even some rich people can buy subsidised food and that some of it is sold on the black market.
Al Jazeera's Amr El-Kahky reports from Egypt."
