CAIRO (Reuters) - Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Kandil called for calm in Cairo on Wednesday so that an effort to promote national dialogue could have a chance of success.

In a statement, Kandil urged calm around the presidential palace - the scene of fighting between supporters and opponents of President Mohamed Mursi - to "give the opportunity for the efforts being made now to begin a national dialogue".
