Egypt Urges US Restraint Over Missouri Unrest

The Egyptian Foreign Ministry’s statement on the unrest in Ferguson read similarly to one issued by U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration in July 2013, when the White House “urged security forces to exercise maximum restraint and caution” in dealing with demonstrations by Morsi supporters.

The ministry added it was “closely following the escalation of protests” in Ferguson, unleashed by the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager by a white policeman on August 9.

Human Rights Watch said in a report last week Egyptian security forces systematically used excessive force against Islamist protesters after Morsi was ousted. Egypt said the report was “characterized by negativity and bias.”
