Speaking today the Foreign Secretary William Hague said:
“I am deeply concerned at the clashes in central Cairo. The violent tactics of the security forces are unacceptable as are the violent actions of some of the protestors, which are inconsistent with the democratic process in which Egypt is now engaged.
“Egypt has the chance to build a better future on the basis of democratic participation and choice. I welcome the orderly conduct of the current elections. It is essential not to put this political process in danger”.
