January 7, 2013 05:48

Egyptian President Mohamad Morsi said that the Syrian people should decide how to punish their president for his "war crimes," in a CNN interview aired in part Sunday.

"The Syrian people, through their revolution and through the movement will, when the bloodshed stops, move to a new stage where they will have an independent parliament and a government of their choosing," Morsi told CNN's Wolf Blitzer. "Then they will decide what they want to do against those who committed crimes against them. It is the Syrian people who decide."
