Hague urges return to democracy in Egypt

The UK wants to see a civilian-led government in Egypt, says Foreign Secretary William Hague.

He added that the UK did not support military interventions to resolve disputes in democratic systems but called for a swift return to democratic processes and early presidential elections.

Mr Hague urged Egypt's political leaders to find a way to work together on a new constitution which protects minorities and he said an interim government must take urgent steps to improve the country's economic situation.
