Photos of the Day: May 10, 2013

In this undated image made from video released by the producers of "Awel el Kheit" or "the Thread" which aired earlier this month on the private TV station ONTV, Waleed Hammad walks in a busy shopping district in Cairo, Egypt, dressed as a woman as a hidden camera crew films him for a investigative story on sexual harassment. The 24-year-old actor dressed conservatively for his mission into the secret world of sexual harassment and abuse on the streets of Cairo, donning a long skirt and sleeved shirt and covering his head like many Egyptian women.
