Egyptian president defends security laws ahead of UK visit

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi defended his sweeping security laws ahead of his arrival in London on Wednesday for talks with British Prime Minister David Cameron. Sisi has left Cairo for London, where he will hold talks with Cameron on security cooperation on Thursday. After longtime president Hosni Mubarak was ousted in 2011, Islamist president Mohamed Morsi was voted in, but he was deposed in 2013 by then army chief Sisi after mass street protests.
