Egypt is facing a "critical moment" in its transition to democracy, US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday as he arrived in Cairo on a surprise trip.

"Obviously this is a critical moment of transition in Egypt, enormous challenges," Kerry said as he met new Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukri. He was also due to meet President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and vowed "the US is very interested in working closely" with the new government "in order to make this transition as rapidly and smoothly as possible".
