Canada Concerned by Violence in Egypt

By Canada - Ministry of Foreign Affairs

OTTAWA, Canada, May 4, 2012/African Press Organization (APO)/ -- Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird today issued the following statement:

“Canada is deeply concerned by the deaths of at least 11 protesters in Cairo yesterday.

“Canada urges all sides to remain calm and avoid violence in the run-up to Egypt's first post-uprising presidential poll, scheduled for May 23 and 24.

“On behalf of all Canadians, I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to the families and friends of those killed in these attacks, and I wish a speedy recovery to the injured.

“During the ongoing election period, it is of utmost importance that Egyptian authorities ensure the protection of the human rights and fundamental freedoms of all Egyptians, including the right to freedom of assembly.”

A lie is a belated truth.
