President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad arrived in Egypt on Tuesday on the first trip by an Iranian head of state since the 1979 revolution, underlining the thaw in relations since Egyptians elected an Islamist head of state.
President Mohammed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood politician elected in June, kissed Ahmadinejad as he disembarked from his plane at Cairo airport. The leaders walked down a red carpet, Ahmadinejad smiling as he shook hands with waiting dignitaries.
Visiting Cairo to attend an Islamic summit that begins on Wednesday, the president of the Shia Islamist republic is due to meet later on Tuesday with the grand sheikh of al-Azhar, one of the oldest seats of learning in the Sunni world.
Bangla leader gets life term for war crimes
Dhaka: A top leader of Bangladesh's fundamentalist Jamaat-e-Islami was Tuesday sentenced to life by a special tribunal here for "crime against humanity" during the 1971 independence war against Pakistan, sparking riots that claimed at least one life.
"He (Abdul Kader Mollah) will serve life term," said chairman of the International Crimes Tribunal Justice Obaidul Hassan. Mollah is the assistant secretary-general of the right-wing Jamaat-e-Islami.
Earlier, Mollah was brought before the court under heavy security vigil. Soon after the verdict, Jamaat supporters clashed with police in parts of the capital, leaving at least one dead and several injured.
