Obama to arrive in Saudi Arabia

WASHINGTON (AP) -- After traveling all night, President Barack Obama arrives in Saudi Arabia today on the first part of his trip to the Middle East and Europe.

The president is scheduled to arrive in Riyadh in the afternoon, where he will attend a reception given by King Abdullah.

Obama will then meet with the king at his farm. Concerns about U.S. outreach to Iran, the Israel-Palestinian peace process and the kingdom's willingness to accept Yemeni prisoners from Guantanamo will all likely be on the agenda.

On Thursday, the president goes to Cairo University in Egypt to deliver his long-promised speech on U.S. relations with the Muslim world. He also will hold talks with President Hosni Mubarak and visit a mosque.
