Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speaks with Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, Egypt's leading Sunni Muslim scholar at the historic al-Azhar mosque and university, in Cairo February 5, 2013. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was both kissed and scolded on Tuesday when he began the first visit to Egypt by an Iranian president since Tehran's 1979 Islamic revolution. The trip was meant to underline a thaw in relations since Egyptians elected an Islamist head of state, President Mohamed Mursi, last June. But it also highlighted deep theological and geopolitical differences. REUTERS/Mohamed Abd El Ghany (EGYPT - Tags: POLITICS RELIGION CIVIL UNREST)
