International concern over Egypt clashes

The United States and United Nations have expressed concern about Friday's violence in Egypt following the overthrow of President Mohammed Morsi, in which more than 30 people died.
The US state department urged Egypt's leaders to put a stop to the violence. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon called for demonstrators to be protected.
The army removed Mr Morsi on Wednesday following protests by millions.
Pro-Morsi protesters were gathering on Saturday in Cairo's Nasr City area.
The ousted Islamist president's opponents have called for demonstrations against the Muslim Brotherhood, to which he belongs, on Sunday.
He is in detention, along with some senior Brotherhood figures.
Early on Saturday, state media reported the Brotherhood's deputy leader Khairat el-Shater had been arrested at his Cairo home on suspicion of incitement to violence.
