Stray cat in Cairo airport irks authorities before review


Cairo (AP) – A stray cat is darting around Cairo’s international airport, flustering authorities trying to catch it days ahead of a major international inspection. Security men were called in to try to capture the rebellious feline, which had been fed by some passengers and staff in recent days but has now been declared persona non grata by authorities ahead of an upcoming International Civil Aviation Organization visit. It is not the first such incident involving animals at the Cairo airport – several days ago a stray dog wandered onto a runway, leading security men to chase it away.
