Turkish PM arrives in Egypt for meeting with Morsi

Turkey's Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan arrived in Egypt on Saturday for a visit overshadowed by an Israeli aerial assault on neighbouring Gaza strongly condemned by both Ankara and Cairo.

Erdogan was scheduled to hold talks with President Mohamed Morsi, a fellow Islamist whose Muslim Brotherhood movement is close to the Islamist group Hamas which rules Gaza.

Both leaders have been urged by the United States to press Hamas to stop firing rockets into Israel.

But unlike Washington, Erdogan and Morsi have blamed Israel for the fighting, which escalated on Wednesday when an Israeli air strike killed Hamas's military chief in Gaza.

Erdogan's arrival with a ministerial entourage and dozens of Turkish businessmen coincides with an Arab League emergency meeting of foreign ministers in Cairo on Saturday to discuss the conflict in Gaza.
