Egyptian burned Kerry’s pictures
TEHRAN, March 3 (MNA) –A group of Egyptian demonstrators has set fire to pictures of Kerry, protesting his visit to Egypt, and chanting "Kerry, you are not welcome here".

‘Youm Sabaa’ reported that demonstrators chanted slogans against the US and Zionist regime. One slogan said “go home, Kerry. Egypt is revolutionary, and prefers to be free.”

With demonstrations increased, security forces and some other forces in civilian clothes were deployed around the Foreign Ministry.

Recently, Kerry had asked the National Salvation Front, the main opposition group in Egypt, to change its position regarding the boycott of the parliamentary elections, but the political groups called it the US intervention in the internal affairs of Egypt.

John Kerry arrived in Cairo on Saturday. US officials say Kerry will give this message to Egyptian officials that in order to receive a $4.8 billion loan from IMF; Egypt will have to implement painful economic reforms which US proposed.

US Secretary of State is now in Egypt in the 6th leg of his 9 leg travel to Europe and Middle East. Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Qatar are his next destinations.
