**Kerry Arrives In Saudi Arabia After Releasing Aid to Egypt**
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has arrived in Saudi Arabia's capital, Riyadh, after a stop in Cairo where he pledged renewed financial assistance to Egypt.
During a meeting with Egypt's President Mohamed Morsi on Sunday, Kerry said the U.S. will provide $190 million immediately as part of a larger $450 million assistance package to spur crucial economic reforms. He also said Washington will give an additional $60 million for a new enterprise fund to support Egyptian entrepreneurs and young people.
For his part, Mr. Morsi gave assurances that Cairo will implement political and economic reforms to help stabilize his bitterly divided country.
Mr. Morsi also promised to finalize an agreement with the International Monetary Fund on a $4.8 billion loan package that has languished for months. Egypt's finance minister said he expects a deal to be reached with the IMF before parliamentary elections in April.
Cairo's central Tahrir Square became turbulent again Sunday evening as protesters demanding reforms clashed with security forces and set fire to at least two cars. Protesters also clashed with security in the troubled city of Port Said. Military officials say one policeman was killed in the clashes and dozens of people were injured.
**Karachi Mourns 45 Killed in Blast**
Pakistan's largest city, Karachi, shut down Monday to mourn the 45 people killed in a car bomb explosion outside a mosque that also wounded about 150 others.
Police say the bomb exploded Sunday as worshippers were leaving evening prayers in a neighborhood dominated by minority Shi'ite Muslims. Several buildings caught fire and people were trapped under the rubble of structures that collapsed. Women and children are among those wounded.
Paramilitary officer Pervez Ahmad says a chemical used in the blast caught fire and spread the destruction.
No one has claimed responsibility, but Sunni Muslim militants with links to al-Qaida and the Taliban frequently target their Shi'ite neighbors across Pakistan, especially in Karachi.
According to the independent Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, at least 2,284 people died in ethnic, sectarian and political violence last year in Karachi.
