    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.
