Syrian refugees, who number more than 100,000 in Egypt, say they were welcomed less than a year ago by newly elected Islamist President Mohamed Morsi. But in the aftermath of the July coup that ousted Morsi, many Egyptians have also turned against the Syrian refugees.
Sept. 6, 2013Syrian refugee Abdel Nasser, who arrived in Cairo four months ago, prepares platters of rotisserie chicken at a small outdoor restaurant at a neighborhood market in the 6th of October City suburb. A large number of other Syrians have chosen to live in the suburb because of the availability of cheaper apartments and possible work among the many Syrian-owned businesses there. The United Nations says that at the beginning of September there were 111,424 Syrian refugees in Egypt.Scott Nelson/For The Washington Post
