Tourists staying away from Egypt pyramids

Pyramid in Egypt

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

Tourists usually flock to see the pyramids of Giza in Egypt - but because of the protests in the country, they're staying away.

The famous pyramids are near to the capital city of Cairo, where thousands of people are still protesting in the streets, unhappy at the country's president.

This has meant lots of tourists have decided to leave the area and the pyramids have no one visiting them. Many shops have shut up and workers and camels have little to do.

Leah's got the latest on how the problems are affecting Egypt.
