Residents of a small island in Egypt are facing eviction and a military trial. In November, the hundreds of army personnel stormed the island of al-Qursaya, on the outskirts of the capital Cairo. One person was killed and dozens were arrested. Rights groups say that the military used excessive force in their attempt to evict the unarmed residents. Al Jazeera's Sherine Tadros reports from al-Qursaya.
