Søvndal denounces Egyptian military

Foreign Minister Villy Søvndal (Socialistisk Folkeparti) has joined other leaders around the world in denouncing Egyptian security forces for their role in the ongoing violence in that country. “I am deeply concerned about the violent clashes in Egypt and the killing of protesters,” Søvndal said. “Authorities, including the military, have the responsibility to prevent these deaths. The freedom of expression and a right to peaceful demonstrations must be respected.” More than 70 people have died in Egypt during violent clashes between security forces and supporters of former President Mursi.  Søvndal called on both sides to sit down and work toward a peaceful solution. – DR News
