Egyptian Prime Minister Apologizes, Invites Ikhwanul Muslimin Dialogue

Ahmad Shafiq, Egypt's new prime minister sworn in, apologized for the violence in Tahrir Square. He said it should not happen again. Just as the vice president's call Omar Suleiman, he also said that Mubarak's call to resign was "unacceptable", but said that dialogue with all of the opposition will begin. When asked if this included Ikhwanul Muslimin, the banned political activities in Egypt, Shafiq said, "Nobody will be excluded from the dialogue. "

Egyptian Cabinet has previously denied that he has been instrumental in mobilizing support Mubarak to attack pro-democracy demonstrators in Tahrir Square. "To accuse the government of mobilizing this is a real fiction. That would defeat our goal to restore calm," said Magdy Rady, the cabinet spokesman told Reuters news agency.

The government will take steps it can to identify who was behind indisen it. "We try to handle this," he said. Egypt has been in turmoil since last week with pro-democracy activists pressing Mubarak to immediately go down
