WASHINGTON - The United States on Friday urged the Egyptian military give way "as soon as possible" to full civilian rule, hardening its rhetoric as demonstrations against the army drew tens of thousands to central Cairo.

"Full transfer of power to a civilian government must take place in a just and inclusive manner that responds to the legitimate aspirations of the Egyptian people, as soon as possible," said White House press secretary Jay Carney.

The statement, issued in the early hours of Washington's morning to coincide with the Egyptian day, referenced growing US concern at the week-long violence.

The United States has called repeatedly for restraint on all sides since the violence restarted, and made plain that it now felt compelled to harden its tone.
