Morsi Calls For Crisis Talks Amid State of Emergency

Wants a "national dialogue"

|

Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi has urged leading opposition figures to attend a "national dialogue" meeting following four days of deadly violence.

Dozens of people have died since a court sentenced 21 people to death over football riots. Anger over Mr Morsi's rule has fuelled unrest elsewhere.

Mr Morsi declared a state of emergency in Port Said, Suez and Ismailia, and a 21:00 to 06:00 curfew from Monday.
