Obama to Address Muslim World

Updated at: 1329 PST, Saturday, May 09, 2009

WASHINGTON: US President Obama will make his promised speech to the Muslim world from Egypt, a White House official said.

Obama pledged during the campaign to address the Muslim world from a Muslim capital within the first few months of taking office.

Having settled on Egypt, the White House announced that he is adding a stop there to his early June overseas trip. That trip will also take him to Normandy, France, for the anniversary of D-Day, and to the Buchenwald concentration camp and Dresden, Germany.
