Obama urges Morsi to respond to demonstrators

DAR ES SALAAM - US President Barack Obama called embattled Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi to convey concerns about mass protests against Morsi's regime and urged him to respond to issues raised by the demonstrators, the White House said on Tuesday.
The US president "told President Morsi that the United States is committed to the democratic process in Egypt and does not support any single party or group," the White House said.
"President Obama encouraged President Morsi to take steps to show that he is responsive to their concerns, and underscored that the current crisis can only be resolved through a political process," it said in a statement.
