Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu has condemned the attack outside the headquarters of the Republican Guard in Egypt’s capital.
“I strongly condemn the massacre during the morning prayers in the name of basic human values that we have been defending,” Davutoğlu wrote on his Twitter account.
At least 42 Muslim Brotherhood supporters were killed earlier today when the army opened fire on protesters outside an elite army headquarters in Cairo.
“Despite provocations, we expect from our Egyptian brothers to protect democracy and free will in dignity,” Davutoğlu added. The foreign minister urged the start of a political normalization process respecting the people’s will.
