Mubarak in Saudi Arabia to discuss Hariri probe

Egyptian and Saudi Arabia leaders discussed Tuesday the standoff between Syria and the United Nations over the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and his foreign minister flew to the Saudi port city of Jiddah for a visit of a few hours to discuss Syria with King Abdullah. Mubarak was seeking to reduce tension in the region, which has already been stoked by the Iraqi conflict, a Saudi official had said late Monday. The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media.
