Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak cancels his trip to Washington following the death of his 12 year-old grandson.

Egyptian ambassador to the US, Sameh Shoukry, said that Mubarak will reschedule his visit to the US due to the sudden death of his grandson Mohammed.

Mubarak's grandson died due to health problems. Mubarak was not seen at Mohammed's funeral on Tuesday.

Mubarak was scheduled to visit Washington to discuss the Middle East peace process with US President Barack Obama May 25-27.

In an effort to fulfill one of his presidential campaign promises, Obama is due to address Egyptians in Cairo next month.
