Pope in Egypt

Host Bob Edwards talks to NPR's Jennifer Ludden about the Pope's visit to Egypt. He'll be fulfilling a dream of visiting Mount Sinai where Moses is said to have received the Ten Commandments. It's one of the highlights of a millennial pilgrimage to the great biblical sites of the Middle East that will also take him to Jerusalem next month. But the three-day visit to Egypt began far from the tranquillity of Mount Sinai in the traffic-choked capital, Cairo.
