Hillary Clinton to arrive in Cairo for first post-Mubarak visit



US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton plans to arrive in Cairo on Tuesday for her first visit to Egypt after the ouster of former President Hosni Mubarak.

Clinton will spend two days in Egypt, as part of a trip that also includes Tunisia. She will meet with Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, head of the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, Prime Minister Essam Sharaf, and Foreign Minister Nabil al-Araby.

She will also visit Tahrir Square before she meets with a delegation of the revolution’s youth and a member of the Muslim Brotherhood group at the US embassy.

Clinton will discuss developments in the region, especially how to force a no-fly zone in Libya in order to protect citizens there from Colonel Muammar Qadhafi’s troops.
