Ties strained ahead of Obama talks with Morsi

Protests outside US embassy in Cairo over anti-Islam film likely to dominate meeting between leaders at UN.

    Barack Obama, the US president, is set to meet Mohamed Morsi, his Egyptian counterpart, this week on the sidelines of the UN General assembly in New York.

    Relations between the two countries have been strained after protestors, angered over an anti-Islam movie, attempted to storm the US embassy in Cairo last week.
