State Department Confirms Kerry Visit to Middle East


The U.S. State Department confirmed on Sunday night that Secretary of State John Kerry would travel to Cairo on Monday, where he will meet with senior officials from Egypt and other countries about bringing about a ceasefire in Gaza.

“The United States – and our international partners – are deeply concerned about the risk of further escalation, and the loss of more innocent life,” said a statement from State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki.
