The city of Cape Town appears intent on rounding up homeless people and shipping them off to temporary camps, in an effort to sanitize the city for the 2010 soccer world cup.

Though organizers of the world cup insist that they are trying to "integrate" the homeless with the event, there are still persistent reports that the homeless are in danger of being completely marginalized by the 2010 soccer world cup.

For more details about the challenges faced by the homeless in Cape Town in the run up to "2010", watch the above feature by Al Jazeera.
