Egyptians must disown violence: Brotherhood leader
Cairo: The spiritual leader of Egypt`s fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood is urging Egyptians to disown violence, saying that working through the ballot box is the best way to lift the country out of its current political crisis.
Egypt has been engulfed in turmoil linked to a contentious draft constitution backed by President Mohammed Mursi, who hails from the Brotherhood, and his Islamist allies.
Brotherhood supreme guide Mohammed Badie says the group`s supporters did not initiate the violent clashes this week outside the presidential palace that left at least six people dead.
Badie`s remarks this morning came ahead of a meeting Mursi has called with his opponents to discuss the crisis. The opposition has rejected talks, saying Mursi must first cancel the referendum on the draft constitution set for December 15.
