US Vice President Dick Cheney is expected to meet on Saturday with Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah for talks on developments in the Middle East, including Iraq. Cheney was scheduled to leave Friday for Saudi Arabia, his office said in a statement that provided no other details. The trip comes ahead of President George W. Bush's planned visit to Amman, Jordan, for talks with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. The meetings will be held against a backdrop of increasing violence in the war-torn nation where, on Thursday, 215 people were killed and 257 wounded in a series of bombings by Sunni Arab insurgents in the Baghdad Shiite slum of Sadr City.
