Egypt Breaking News: Abbas Visits Cairo for Show of Support

by Wochit 0:54 mins

In a show of support for Egypt's transitional government that took over after Mohammed Morsi's ouster, Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas has met with interim president Adly Mansour in Cairo. Egyptian police detained two leaders of a Muslim Brotherhood-allied party in the latest in a wave of arrests of prominent Islamists following President Mohammed Morsi's ouster, while Europe's top diplomat held talks with the rival sides to try to mediate an end to the country's increasingly bloody crisis. Supporters of Egypt's ousted President Mohammed Morsi marched toward a military facility in defiance of an army warning, risking a new confrontation after dozens have been shot dead.
