Obama: US concerned over Egypt protests
US President Barack Obama on Saturday expressed concern over the violent protests in Egypt and urged President Mohammed Morsi's supporters and the opposition to show restraint, dpa reported.
Obama said "getting the political process back on track" was a priority in Egypt, where Washington would like to see both sides engaged in "more consistent conversation" on how to move the country forward.
"No one is benefiting from the current stalemate there."
