    (ANSAmed) - CAIRO - Tourist hunters roam the area near the Giza Pyramids in search of visitors, of whom ''we see about 20 to 30 per day'', said one of the itinerant vendors.
    Meanwhile, inflation has skyrocketed in Cairo, with basic goods now costing 30% more.
    ''Opportunist shopkeepers are to blame,'' reports government media. ''There is little security and the curfew forces us to close earlier,'' said one of the sellers. (ANSAmed).
