CORRECTED (OFFICIAL)-Egypt must protect peaceful protesters - Pillay
(Corrects story after UN releases corrected statement without reference to prosecuting government members)
GENEVA Dec 6 (Reuters) - Egypt's government must protect peaceful protesters and prosecute anyone inciting violence, including politicians, U.N. Human Rights Commissioner Navi Pillay said on Thursday.
"People have the right to protest peacefully and they have the right not to be killed or injured for doing so. The current government came to power on the back of similar protests and so should be particularly sensitive to the need to protect protesters' rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly," Pillay said.
