Speaking after an emergency meeting of the EU Foreign Affairs Council, Foreign Secretary William Hague condemned the on-going bloodshed in Egypt and praised the work of European Union foreign policy chief Cathy Ashton.
He said: "All ministers have been reflecting the strong condemnation of the disproportionate actions of the Egyptian security forces but also of the acts of some of those opposed to the authorities in the attacking of churches and hospitals - totally unacceptable acts of terrorism."
