WASHINGTON - The State Department on Monday called on the Egyptian army to exercise "maximum restraint" in dealing with protesters after at least 51 people were killed when the military opened fire on supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsi.

"We strongly condemn any violence as well as any incitement of violence," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told a daily briefing.

"We call on the military to use maximum restraint responding to protesters, just as we urge all of those demonstrating to do so peacefully," she added.
