French President Emmanuel Macron is to hold talks in Cairo later today with Egyptian counterpart Abdel Fattah al-Sissi, Macron’s office says, on the latest leg of a whistlestop crisis tour.

Egypt has been one of the main brokers in efforts to secure the release of more than 200 hostages, including French citizens, held by Hamas in Gaza. Macron already met separately with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, and was due to meet King Abdullah II of Jordan in Amman before leaving for Egypt.
