Cairo turns orange (Pics)

An orange cloud has swept through Cairo, forcing people to take cover in buildings as strong winds brought thick dust to the Egyptian capital.

Several ports were reportedly closed and officials at Cairo airport said the sandstorm had caused flight delays.

Egypt's health ministry advised people with respiratory problems to avoid leaving their homes until the storm on Wednesday had passed.
