TV script

Egyptian fans in Zamalik in front of Algerian Embassy

A couple of weeks back, we were supposed to write a TV script on any news story of our preference. The one I found very interesting and up to date was on what was going on in the Arab World, because of a conflict between Egypt and Algeria which occurred because of the play offs of next year’s FIFA World Cup 2010.

Here is my script:

Anchor Lead in:
