Wednesday: Day in photos - South Africa
South Africans who have been living on the streets for a year stage a sit-in outside the Provincial Housing Office in central Cape Town, South Africa. The protest's goal was to press for a solution to the homeless problem: Thousands of street dwellers who were promised shelter by the government still have not received it. South Africans go to the polls in April this year to vote for a new president, and housing is a key issue in the race.
