Thousands of Egyptians attended the “brief” military funeral of Egypt’s former vice president Omar Suleiman and longtime spy chief of former ousted regime on Saturday, July 21. In attendance were the head of Egypt’s Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), Field Marshall Hussein Tantawi, PM Kamal al-Ganzouri, as well as representatives of President Mohamed Morsi’s office.

Weeping and screaming were loudly heard at Al-Rashdan Mosque in Nasr City in Cairo while the coffin was brought to the mosque.

The military funeral procession outside the mosque took less than five minutes.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Dr. Hussein Abaza, University professor, relative of Omar Suleiman:
“He was such a patriotic person who loved Egypt and would sacrifice himself for Egypt. He always served the country and was ready to serve it in any situation. He has always been an efficient member of the military institution. Egypt for him was the dearest to his heart.”

Funeral prayers held at the mosque and were attended by several thousand mourners in addition to Egypt's Grand Mufti Ali Gomaa and a delegation from Al-Azhar.

The mosque was heavily secured by military troops.

Supporters of Suleiman gathered outside the mosque, shouting statements against the Muslim Brotherhood as they accused the MB of conspiracy with the United States to murder Suleiman.

On the other hand, supporters of ousted president Hosni Mubarak demanded on their “Pro-Mubarak” Facebook page a quick investigation into the mysterious death of Suleiman and a public announcement of the results.

Suleiman died on Thursday, July 19, at the age of 76 at a hospital in the United States while undergoing medical tests as he suffered from lung disease as well as cardiac problems according to the Egyptian state-run Middle East News Agency (MENA).

It was Suleiman, who announced Mubarak's decision to step down from power in February 2011.

Zakariya Mohieddin, founder of Egypt's Intelligence Service, died Tuesday morning at the age of 94.

The head of Egypt’s ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, and his deputy Sami Anan attended the military funeral held for Mohieddin, who was also Vice President to Egypt’s late president Gamal Abdel-Nasser.

He was born in July 1918. In 1967, when Egypt lost the war with Israel, the late president Gamal Abdel-Nasser resigned and appointed Mohieddin to take over but he refused the position.

Egypt’s PM Kamal al-Ganzouri also attended the funeral along with a number of armed forces members who stressed the important role Mohieddin played in Egypt’s military and political history.

Egyptian Prime Minister Kamal al-Ganzouri said that the government transferred USD 6.14 billion from special funds of former regime offices to the state budget, in a press conference at the headquarters of the General Authority for Investment in Cairo, Thursday, April 19. Ex-regime offices once kept public monies in special private funds that were not incorporated into the state budget, and as such were not subject to oversight by any budget committee.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Prime Minister Kamal al-Ganzouri:
"The issue of special funds has been going on for more than twenty years. Former regime government offices established these special funds from the public money resource to use for employment, salaries, rewards, etc. We traced these funds strictly, and like I said all these funds are now present at the Central Bank in the General Budget Account."

Al-Ganzouri stated that the government's costs have been gradually reduced saving USD 4.14 billion. He also shed light on the efforts done to relief Egypt's foreign debt.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) - Egypt's Prime Minister Kamal al-Ganzouri:
"We have been keen on minimizing the foreign debts. They were USD 5.83 billion, seven months ago. In March 2012, they were reduced to USD 5.54 billion."

The Egyptian Prime Minister told reporters that even though the country's revenues declined to USD 12.8 billion over the past few months, the government successfully achieved relative and notable economic stability.

Cairo, Egypt | April 10, 2012

Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti held talks with Arab League Secretary-General Nabil al-Araby on Tuesday, April 10, at the League headquarters in Cairo, where they discussed the obstacles of the Middle East peace process and the deteriorating situation in Syria.

Monti told reporters in a joint press conference after the meeting that his visit to Cairo concludes a tour in the region including Lebanon, Israel and the Palestinian territories, stressing that Italy supports the two-state solution for the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Italian) – Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti:
"In all these visits I conveyed the Italian vision which is based on a strong belief in the necessity of finding a solution for the Palestinian issue and that the way for that is the two-state solution for the two peoples."

In addition to the Palestinian issue, the talks of Monti and Al-Araby focused on the situation in Syria where they shared views and concerns over the ongoing violence in the country, urging immediate ceasefire.

Monti also voiced his country's support for the mission of the UN-Arab League recent envoy to Syria Kofi Annan.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Arab League Secretary-General Nabil al-Araby:
"We started with talking about Palestine and what is going on there. HE Prime Minister talked about his meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah two days ago. We then moved to talk about the situation in Syria. We exchanged views on what's going on in Syria and that human conscience does not accept the violence and the killing taking place in Syria for more than a year. This must stop."

SOUNDBITE 3 (Italian) – Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti:
"Syria was the focus of our lengthy talk. There is complete agreement between our view and that of the Arab League. In addition, we express our full support of the mission of the special UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan."

The talks also dealt with the situations in Sudan, Somalia, Libya and Egypt, as well as the Iranian nuclear program.

Monti reaffirmed Italy's keenness on cementing the friendly ties with the Arab League, noting that the League's influence in the region grew remarkably in the wake of the Arab Spring events.

Monti arrived in Cairo Monday on a two-day visit and held talks with SCAF Leader Field Marshall Hussein Tantawi and Egypt's Prime Minister Kamal al-Ganzouri.

It is the first time an Italian Prime Minister visits the Arab League in Cairo, Al-Araby told reporters.
