Secretary of State John Kerry said Sunday there were signs Egypt's military-backed rulers would embrace democracy as he visited the country for the first time since the overthrow of elected president, Mohammed Morsi. "President Obama and the American people support the people of Egypt," he told reporters after landing in the capital Cairo. His comments came after the July 3 ouster - and subsequent deadly crackdown on Morsi's supporters - prompted Washington to freeze some aid to its long-standing ally.After Egypt, Kerry will visit Saudi Arabia, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, Algeria and Morocco.
