Kerry demands Egypt end state of emergency, denounces violence

The United States strongly condemns Egypt's violence, calls for the state of emergency to end as soon as possible and urges all sides to seek a political solution, US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Wednesday.

"Egyptians inside and outside the government need to take a step back, they need to calm the situation and avoid further loss of life," he added.
