EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton on Monday urged all sides in Egypt against "provocation or escalation" as Islamists called for an uprising after the deaths of dozens of loyalists of the country's ousted president.

A spokesperson for Ashton said she urged all sides "to move rapidly toward reconciliation" and that "all those who claim legitimacy must ... avoid any provocation or escalation of violence."
