Cameron first to visit Egypt.

DAVID Cameron flew into Cairo yesterday in the first visit by a world leader to Egypt since a popular uprising forced president Hosni Mubarak out of office 11 days ago.

The Prime Minister diverted the start of a planned tour of the Gulf region to hold talks with the military leadership in a bid to help ensure a "genuine transition" to civilian rule.

And as a wave of protests continued in other countries, he condemned the "completely appalling" violent repression carried out by the Libyan regime of Muammar Gaddafi which has reportedly left upwards of 200 dead and many more injured.
