Cairo: For the first time since the ouster of Islamic president Mohamed Morsi as the Egyptian President, US Secretary of State William Burns will reportedly meet the Egyptian leaders.

Burns will meet the military, business an administrative officials and will urge the present government to end the violence following the exit of Morsi and ensure “ a transition leading to an inclusive, democratically elected civilian government", as per a BBC report.

Several Muslim Brotherhood leaders were arrested on charges of inciting violence against protesters following the ouster of Morsi on July 3.

The prosecution also ordered the freezing of assets of 14 Brotherhood leaders, the conservative Salafist group and Al-Jamaa al-Islamiya group.

The leaders include the Brotherhood`s Mohamed Badie, the group`s former general guide Mahdi Akef, the party`s deputy head Essam al-Erian, and Islamic preacher Safwat Hegazi.

They are suspected of inciting violence outside the Republican Guards House in Cairo and Nahdah Square in Giza, which left at least 60 dead.
