Public transport authority workers in Cairo have returned to work following 12 days strike.

They secured a deal which met some of their demands for improved pay, investment and an end to corruption in the public transport authority.

The strike has exposed tensions in the government over how to deal with the rising tide of workers’ demands.

The minister of labour agreed to transfer money to meet the strikers’ wage claim, yet public transport bosses have denied receiving the cash.
