Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood says to attend unity talks
CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, the group that propelled President Mohamed Mursi to office in a June election, said it would attend unity talks on Wednesday called for by the army to end a political crisis in the nation.
"The invitation is clear that it is from the army with the permission of the president. If anyone is invited, I don't think it is appropriate to stay away," Brotherhood spokesman Mahmoud Ghozlan told Reuters, confirming his group would go.
