Morsi shortens Europe visit amid unrest in Egypt

Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi has decided to shorten his visit to Europe, a presidential spokesman said Tuesday, as unrest in the country continued for a sixth day, DPA reported.

Morsi had originally planned to spend a total of three days in Germany and France. He will now spend only a few hours in Berlin on Wednesday, where he will meet with Chancellor Angela Merkel and deliver a speech at the Koerber Foundation.

The spokesman did not say whether Morsi would then travel to France.

Clashes across Egypt left more than 50 killed, since protests began last week on the eve of the second anniversary of the popular revolt that ousted Hosny Mubarak.
