DUBAI - Qatar condemned an attack by Egyptian security forces on Muslim Brotherhood supporters camping out in Cairo on Wednesday that killed at least 30 people.

State news agency QNA quoted a foreign ministry official as urging Egyptian authorities to "refrain from the security option in dealing with peaceful protests, and to preserve the lives of Egyptians at protest sites."

Qatar had strongly backed ousted Islamist President Mohamed Morsi's Brotherhood government.
