Poor Egyptian villagers crowd a subsidized bread distribution center in Mahalet Damana, a delta village 135 kilometers north of the capital, Cairo. Local officials moved the line to this location after Amal al Dusouqi, 43, was trampled to death April 9, 2008 in a more confined distribution point. Rising food prices have become a increasing crisis for Egypt's poor over the past several months.
