U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken arrived in Egypt Sunday on the first stop of his Middle East visit, where he is expected to address a surge in deadly Israeli-Palestinian violence.

Blinken will meet the president and top diplomat in Egypt -- which has historically played a mediating role in the Middle East conflict -- before setting off to Jerusalem and Ramallah on Monday and Tuesday.
