ANKARA, Turkey — Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday called on Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to take steps that meet popular demands for change.

Erdogan said that Mubarak should act immediately and prevent "exploiters, groups with dirty aims, (and) those sections that have dark designs over Egypt to take the initiative." He did not elaborate.

Erdogan also called for anti-government protesters to refrain from violence and protect the country's cultural heritage.

The Turkish leader was addressing members of his Islamic-oriented party in Parliament.

Erdogan urged Mubarak to "lend an ear to the people's cries and extremely human demands."
