Minister of Culture Farouk Hosni announced plans to make Fatimid Cairo a prime tourist attraction by 2008.



Several new museums will be built in Cairo to exhibit Islamic and Fatimid antiquities, Hosni said, adding that encroachments around monuments in the capital will be demolished, and that green areas will be planted around the Sultan Qalawoun and AI-Hakim Billah mosques.
