Egypt's foreign minister says that a minor cabinet minister, rather than the president, will head its delegation to the Arab League summit in Damascus in a snub to host country Syria. Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit has told the state news agency MENA that Mufid Shihab, minister of state for Legal Affairs and Legislative Councils will lead the Egyptian delegation to the summit which begins Friday. Wednesday's move comes after Saudi Arabia announced it would only be sending its Arab League ambassador to the summit and Lebanon would be boycotting the meeting altogether.
