US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton spoke with Egypt's new vice president to urge an investigation into attacks on protesters.

Clinton urged the government of Egypt to "hold accountable those who were responsible for violent acts", in a statement from the office of the State Department's spokesman released late Wednesday.

Clinton also "expressed hope that both the government and the opposition would seize the opportunity, starting immediately," created by Suleiman's call for "a broad dialogue with representatives of Egypt's opposition parties", the statement also said.
