EU's Ashton regrets not seeing Morsi, urges release
EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said Wednesday that she regretted not having been able to meet Egypt's ousted president Mohamed Morsi on a visit to Cairo.

 

She called for his immediate release from the custody he has been kept in since just hours after the military toppled him on July 3 following nationwide street protests against him. "I believe he should be released. I was assured he is well. I would have liked to see him," Ashton told reporters. (AFP)
