US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke with Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr on Tuesday, conveying Washington's deep concern over violent clashes between Christians and military police that occurred in Cairo the weekend. She expressed condolences for all those who were killed and injured as a result of the violence.

The US State Department said in a statement that Clinton expressed to Amr "US support for the Egyptian cabinet’s decision to launch a transparent and credible investigation into the violence and stressed the importance of the investigation beginning immediately and holding accountable all responsible parties with full due process of law."

Clinton reiterated the need for the Egyptian government to ensure that the fundamental rights of all Egyptians are respected, including the rights of religious freedom, peaceful assembly, and the end of military trials for civilians, and that efforts be made to address sectarian tensions.
