30,000 queue for housing assistance in Atlanta

30,000 queue for housing assistance in Atlanta 12 Aug 2010 Some 30,000 people lined up outside a local shopping centre in Atlanta, Georgia, on Wednesday in the hope of receiving public housing assistance. The authorities were unprepared for the throng, which was unruly at times. Amid sweltering conditions, 62 people were hurt and 20 needed hospital care. Only 455 rent assistance vouchers and 200 public housing spaces were on offer - while 13,000 applications were taken. Some had lined up since Sunday for the possibility of discounted rent.
