Egypt's Mursi says dialogue needed to end crisis

CAIRO (Reuters) - Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi said on Thursday that a political crisis sparked by his move to expand his powers should be resolved by dialogue not violence.

“Such painful events happened because of political differences that should be resolved through dialogue,” the Islamist president said in a televised address to the nation after two days of violence during protests.
