US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called Wednesday for an open and transparent dialogue in Egypt amid a deepening political crisis over sweeping powers adopted by President Mohamed Morsi.
"The upheaval we are seeing... indicates that dialogue is urgently needed. It needs to be two-way," Clinton told journalists, after tens of thousands of protestors encircled the presidential palace in Cairo.
