Alexandria landmark in danger

Alexandria landmark in danger

This is Fort Qaitbay, guarding the entrance to Alexandria, one of Egypt’s truly beautiful cities. Al-Masry al-Youm reports that the 500-year-old fort is in danger of collapse because sea water has seeped into the caves under it. It’s a sad metaphor for Egypt’s collapsing infrastructure.
