FILE - In this Sept. 20, 2013 file photo, then Army Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Sedki Sobhi attends the funeral of Giza Police Gen. Nabil Farrag in Cairo, Egypt. South Korea's news agency said Tuesday Sept. 12, 2017, that Sobhi, Egypt's defense minister, on a visit to Seoul, announced his country has cut military ties with North Korea. There was no immediate confirmation from the Egyptian government of the agency's report, but the move follows Washington's decision last month to cut or delay $300 million in military and economic aid to Egypt over its human rights record and ties with Pyongyang.
