WHITE HOUSE — The United States has strongly condemned the violence taking place in Egypt.  The White House says violence will make the country's political transition more difficult, while Secretary of State John Kerry says Egypt is at a "pivotal moment."  

Secretary Kerry had strong words for the events in Egypt Wednesday, saying violence and further political polarization will not bring an answer to Egypt's problems.
