Washington, February 08:

The US Saturday strongly condemned the ongoing violence in Egypt, saying that it is extremely disturbed by the incidents in particular those against women.

"We strongly condemn the recent violence and the attacks that have taken place in Egypt; that we are extremely disturbed by these incidents, including sexual assaults against women," State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland told reporters.

"We're also concerned that the violence is preventing women and others from coming out and expressing their views peacefully. And we have been urging the government of Egypt to thoroughly, credibly and independently investigate all claims of violence, all claims of wrongdoing, whether they're by security officials or by demonstrators," she said.

To bring people to justice, accountability, is the best way to prevent recurrence of these kinds of incidents.

"We are also continuing to urge a broad-based dialogue between the government and those stakeholders in the Egyptian system who are not satisfied, who have grievances, to keep the country moving forward," Nuland said.
