CIA director makes "secret" visit to Cairo

CIA Director John Brennan has made a short, secret visit to Cairo, Egypt's Al-Joumhouria has claimed. "Brennan met a number of security officials and reiterated US support to Egypt in its confrontation with terrorist organisations," said the newspaper.

Al-Joumhouria based its news on information provided by an "informed source". The CIA official flew out of Cairo on a military aircraft, it was reported, accompanied by a "large" security contingent.

The newspaper described the visit as a "step towards regaining strong US-Egypt relations." It was the first visit to Cairo by the CIA's top man since the coup on July 3.
