The Arab League expressed concern about the high death toll resulting from clashes in Cairo and other Egyptian cities, sending its "deepest condolences" to the families of the dead.
In a press statement issued on Sunday, the Arab League praised the Egyptian authorities' decision to launch a fact-finding committee to investigate the recent clashes between police forces and pro-Morsi protesters.
Over 200 people have died and hundreds injured since the popularly-backed ouster of former president Mohamed Morsi by the army on 3 July.
The pan-Arab organisation called on the committee to work quickly so that those responsible for the "heartbreaking events" could be held accountable.
The Arab League urged all parties to guarantee the "utmost restraint and commitment to peacefulness" in order "to adhere to the democratic path the Egyptian people have supported."
