Britain has called for "maximum restraint" and strongly condemned violence in Egypt after two days of clashes have left at least 38 people dead.
Foreign Office Minister Alistair Burt said such violence "can have no place is a truly democratic Egypt".
I am deeply concerned by reports of violent clashes resulting in a number of deaths and injuries, following demonstrations to mark the second anniversary of the 25 January revolution and the verdict in the Port Said court case today.
We call on all parties to exercise maximum restraint and to ensure that all protests remain peaceful. I offer the condolences of the UK to the families of all the victims.
