Despite $71 million in U.S. aid since 1978 for a low-income housing project in Egypt, it was not until this year that families were able to benefit, according to a report by the Agency for International Development. In the report, submitted to Congress, AID Inspector General Herbert L. Beckington complained about U.S. aid operations as a whole in Egypt, which gets $2.3 billion a year. He cited the project near Cairo--still under construction--as an example.

The president has said no religious-oriented political parties will be allowed to compete.
