CIA chief in Egypt for security talks

01 November 2012, 16:53

Cairo - Egyptian officials say United States Central Intelligence Director David Petraeus is in Cairo for security talks.

They say Petraeus arrived on Wednesday, leading a US delegation that will meet with top Egyptian security officials to exchange information about combating terrorism.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to speak to reporters. A US Embassy spokesperson declined to give information about the visit.

The visit comes as Egypt is clamping down on suspected militants.

Last week, Egyptian security forces identified a Libyan militant, killed after detonating a bomb during a raid, as suspected of links to the deadly attack on the US mission in Benghazi on 11 September which left four Americans dead, including the US Ambassador Chris Stevens.
