A group of Arab leaders is expected to back the peace plan, voicing support for ending violence and moving toward peace with Israel. US President George W. Bush arrived in Egypt for a summit with Arab leaders, launching his first personal drive for Israeli-Palestinian peace. He meets with six Arab leaders Tuesday in this Red Sea resort to show his commitment to a new Middle East peace initiative, and urge them to give support to Palestinians to make peace with Israel. In the first step on Tuesday, Bush meets Mubarak, Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah, Jordan's King Abdullah, Bahrain's King Hamad and Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas.
