White House Condemns Violence in Egypt

EDGARTOWN, Mass. (AP) — The White House is condemning violence in Egypt, saying it will only make it more difficult for the country to move forward.

At least 95 people were killed in Egypt Wednesday, many of them in assaults on the protest vigils among supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi. Egypt’s interim president also declared a monthlong state of emergency, ordering the armed forces to support police in efforts to restore law and order.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest, speaking at Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., where President Barack Obama is vacationing, says the violence runs counter to the pledges made by Egypt’s interim government. He says the “world is watching” what is happening in Cairo and urged restraint.

The Obama administration has avoided making a determination on whether Morsi’s ouster was a coup.
