EGYPT-CAIRO-ECONOMY-SHOP

Salesclerk Ali waits for customers outside a cloth shop on Talaat Harb Street, near Tahrir Square, downtown Cairo, Egypt, on Dec. 2, 2013. Ali has been working for the 21-year-old cloth shop near the iconic Tahrir Square since 6 years ago and he has witnessed the business turbulence during domestic political changes. He admits that the shop owner Mohamed currently has to pay employees' salary from his own pocket and business is greatly affected since 2011. As Ali said, the shop had to be closed at 3p.m. on Dec. 1 which used to be the gold time for shopping for the reason that security forces fired teargas to disperse student supporters of ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi on the nearby Tahrir Square, which has been a storm center for Pro-Morsi protesters and their opponents.
