CAIRO - Egypt's National Defense Council, headed by President Mohamed Morsi, condemned street violence on Saturday and called for a broad national dialogue to resolve political differences, the information minister said after the council met.

Information Minister Salah Abdel Maqsoud, who attended the meeting with Morsi and other ministers including the defense minister who is a general in charge of the army, said in a televised address the council could consider declaring a state of emergency or a curfew in areas of violence if needed.

At least 39 people have been killed in violence in Port Said on Saturday over a court ruling and across the nation during Friday's anti-Morsi protests.
