ISTANBUL - US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton said on Sunday that the United States would be following the Egyptian elections closely, but urged political actors there against discrimination against women, minorities, or political opponents.

Clinton's comments came after Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood decision on Saturday to field a presidential candidate. Clinton is in Istanbul meeting with Western and Arab officials and members of the Syrian opposition.
