Rumor: Mosque Closed For Obama Speech

From Dubai-based Al Arabiya, a rumor floated in Cairo that a mosque had been cordoned off and closed for worship in preparation for President Obama's speech there earlier tomorrow morning. Members of the Muslim Brotherhood criticized Egypt's security service, though the head of the mosque maintained it was simply closed for renovation. (As Marc noted earlier, the White House invited 10 members of the conservative Brotherhood--an opposition party that has carried out violent campaigns--to the speech.)
