Iraq's Sunni Arab vice president, Tariq al-Hashimi, was in Egypt Monday to seek help from the Arab region's most populous country to stabilize his strife-torn country. Al-Hashimi, who is making his first visit to Cairo since he was picked for the job last year, is scheduled to meet President Hosni Mubarak and have talks with Prime Minister Ahmed Nazif and other top Egyptian officials. He is also expected to meet with the Arab League's chief Amr Moussa and Sheik Mohammed Seyed Tantawi, Egypt's top Muslim cleric.
