CAIRO - Rival Egyptian parties signed a document renouncing violence during a meeting called by the country's top Islamic scholar to end a crisis that has triggered street violence, attendee Ahmed Maher wrote on his Twitter feed.

Maher, founder of the April 6 activist movement, wrote that the signatories included liberal politician Mohamed El-Baradei, leftist leader Hamdeen Sabahi and "all the heads of the Egyptian political parties".

The meeting chaired by Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayyeb, head of al-Azhar mosque and university, included the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood's political party, Saad el-Katatni, and Mahmoud Ezzat, the Brotherhood's deputy leader.
