Security guards have seized a man who tried to hit Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with a shoe as he visited a mosque in the Egyptian capital Cairo. Video of the incident shows a man shouting "coward" as he strikes out. It is not clear what the motive was - some reports suggested it was against Iran's support for Syria's government. Mr Ahmadinejad is the first Iran leader to visit Egypt since the 1979 Islamic revolution. Showing the sole of a shoe is a grave insult in the Arab world. The Iranian leader is attending a summit of the Organisation of Islamic Co-operation, a loose grouping of 57 mainly Muslim countries. Egypt's new Islamist President, Mohammed Morsi, has sought to follow an independent path on foreign policy and travelled to Tehran soon after coming to power last year, the BBC's Yolande Knell reports from Cairo. However so far his talks with Iran about its policy towards Syria have had little impact, our correspondent adds. http://www.bbc.co.uk...e-east-21348630
