Clinton praises 'restraint' in Egypt demos

5th February 2011, Comments 0 comments

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton praised on Saturday the "restraint" shown by the Egyptian security forces in largely peaceful mass demonstrations a day earlier.

A transition in Egypt "will become immeasurably harder if there is not restraint by government and security forces, and we thankfully saw that yesterday with the very large but peaceful demonstration," Clinton said.
