BRUSSELS - The European Union called for a rapid return to democracy in Egypt on Thursday after the country's armed forces overthrew President Mohamed Morsi.

"I urge all sides to rapidly return to the democratic process, including the holding of free and fair presidential and parliamentary elections and the approval of a constitution, to be done in a fully inclusive manner, so as to permit the country to resume and complete its democratic transition," EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said in a statement.
