The U.N. chief said the number of dead in Syria's civil war has passed 100,000, calling for urgent talks on ending 2? years of violence even as President Bashar Assad's government blasted the United States as an unsuitable peace broker. The White House urged the Egyptian military to exercise "maximum restraint" and to do its utmost to prevent clashes between rival protesters. Egypt's military chief called on his countrymen to hold mass demonstrations to voice their support for the army and police to deal with potential "violence and terrorism," a move that signals a stepped up campaign against supporters of the ousted Islamist president.
