Morsy orders Giza governor to form committee in wake of Dahshur clashes

President Mohamed Morsy has ordered Giza Governor Ali Abdel Rahman to form a committee to deal with the aftermath of sectarian clashes in Dahshur.

In a phone call Saturday following Rahman’s return from reconciliation meetings, Morsy asked him to form a committee within 24 hours to estimate damages and compensation, back reconciliation efforts and encourage Christian residents who left to return to their homes.

Morsy also asked Rahman to intensify the security presence in the village until stability and calm are restored, and advised him to bring the full force of the law to bear against anyone further inciting violence.
