Kerry and Top Aides Checked with Metal Detector in Cairo

Egyptian security officers checked U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and his top aides with a metal detector as they arrived for a meeting on Tuesday with President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, Reuters reported.

The procedure is an unusual screening for a senior State Department official, the report noted, as foreign officials usually extend every courtesy to Washington’s top diplomat.
