Egypt minister urges restraint after violent clashes

In a very BBC interview, Nabil Fahmy said the sides "must stop inciting violence and ultizing violence".

On Saturday supporters of the ousted president Mohammed Morsi clashed with security forces - and thousands are continuing a sit-in in a city mosque.

Meanwhile interim President Adly Mansour has authorised his PM to grant the army powers to arrest civilians.

The BBC's Jim Muir in Cairo says many people see this just as one ominous sign - a prelude into a crackdown on the protest camp across the Rabaa al-Adawiya mosque.

Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim has repeatedly warned the camp could well be dispersed "soon" - though the protesters remain defiant.

There were more clashes elsewhere on Sunday, with a family killed in cities north of Cairo - Kafr el-Zayat and Port Said.

Over the past weekend 10 Islamists were also killed from the army inside Sinai peninsula, where militants have increased attacks, state-run news Mena news organization reported.

Speaking to the BBC, Mr Fahmy said his government would want to advance "but pots cessation of violence and incitement".

Addressing criticism that some members in the army and police had gone past an acceptable limit on Saturday, he said: "In case you have people shooting 1 another on sides then you're obviously going to need to casualties."

The government initially denied that security forces fired live rounds on Saturday, saying only lacrimator ended up used.

From the wake of Saturday's killings, the interim authorities attended under intense pressure - from senior figures both at home and abroad.

The Grand Imam of Al-Azhar mosque - the very best Sunni Muslim authority in Egypt - has required a study, as the vice-president with the interim government, Mohamed ElBaradei, declared excessive force was utilized.

Tension for the mosque
Good news that Chancellor Hazem al-Beblawi is now offering the right to grant the military powers to arrest civilians has included with the tense situation surrounding the mosque, according says the BBC's Jim Muir in Cairo.

A large number of Morsi supporters, some using families, are making the mosque the focal point of the round-the-clock protest.

They want Mr Morsi - who has been stripped away from power from the army on 3 July - reinstated.

Dr Hesham Ibrahim says Saturday's scenes with the field hospital were like "hell"
Speakers on the pro-Morsi Muslim Brotherhood, whom the protesters support, say they do not down again from their demands.

But Human Rights Watch researcher Priyanka Motaparthy, who saw a number of the casualties on Saturday, said she was focused on what might happen if your security forces did relocate to clear the protest site.

"I am extra fearful in regards to what the effects will be," she told the BBC.

"We have seen the police repeatedly use excessive force, producing major loss in human life."

The army removed Mr Morsi, Egypt's first democratically elected president, after mass protests against his rule.

Last week it called on supporters to consider towards the streets to present its action a mandate.

A huge number responded by flooding to Cairo's Tahrir Square on Friday night.

Mr Morsi continues to be formally remanded in custody at an undisclosed position for a primary 15-day period, based on a judicial order.

Mr Morsi can also be accused of conspiring using the Palestinian militant group Hamas, which governs the Gaza Strip and contains strong links while using Muslim Brotherhood.

would not open. Like an oyster, it remained pertinaciously shut. Occasionally some good elder would rise to break the painful silence, by repeating some thought from the previous Sunday's sermon, or by telling some incident or some idea which he had seen in a previous number of "The Christian Union." But as we had all been to church, and as most of us take "The Christian Union," this did not add much to the interest of the meeting. Generally another prayer and hymn, sometimes two, sufficed to fill the hour. The pastor kept his eye on the clock. When the hand pointed to nine he rose for the benediction. And never did a crowd of imprisoned schoolboys show more glad exultation at their release than was generally indicated by these brethren and sisters when the words of benediction dismissed them from their period of irksome restraint. Every man, and every woman, too, found a tongue. We broke up into little knots. A busy hum of many voices replaced the dead silence. The "social meeting" commenced when the "prayer-meeting" ended. This, I think, is a fair portraiture of our prayer-meetings at Wheathedge as they were during our late pastor's presence with us.
The fault was not his-at least it was only proximately his. He felt the burden, groaned under it, tried hard, poor man! new york asian escort to remedy the evil. He often came to consult me about it. He tried various plans. He gave a course of weekly new york escort lectures. The prayer-meeting was less a meeting of prayer than before. No man was willing to follow his elaborate lecture with a fragmentary talk. He announced from the pulpit, the preceding Sabbath, the topic for the next meeting. Worse and worse! A few members conscientiously studied up the passage in "Barnes's Notes" and the "Comprehensive Commentary," and brought us the result of their investigations in discourse powerfully prosy, and recondite with second hand learning. The Minister at last gave up the matter in despair. I think the condition of our prayer-meetings was one consideration which greatly influenced him in deciding to leave.
I thought that there was nothing left in them to be lost, that no change could be other than for the better; but after he went what little meeting we had fell away. The few who had been attracted by his personal presence ceased to come. In vain we endeavored to revive our flagging spirits by continually reminding one another that the promise was to two or three gathered together. That was our standard text. Every leader referred to it in his prayers, and generally in his opening remarks. We had need of it. For the last two weeks there were not members enough present to serve as pall-bearers for the dead prayer-meeting.
