CAIRO, Dec 5, 2012 (AFP) –
A spokesman for Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood called on Islamists and opponents clashing on Wednesday to withdraw from near the presidential palace and pledge not to return.
Mahmud Ghozlan told AFP the protesters “should withdraw at the same time and pledge not to return there given the symbolism of the palace.”
He said the Brotherhood, which turned out to support President Mohamed Morsi against opposition protesters, was not in touch with its opponents and it was up to security forces to mediate the resolution.
