CAIRO — French President Francois Hollande arrived in Egypt Sunday on a visit his hosts say will deepen the “distinct and strong” ties the two nations share, but which is also taking place while Egypt’s image in Europe is being battered over the case of an Italian graduate student kidnapped and tortured to death in Cairo.
In Egypt as part of a three-nation Middle East tour, the French leader was accompanied by a large business delegation. The two countries are expected to sign accords in the fields of energy, infrastructure and culture, according to an Egyptian presidential statement.
