UN Security Council to hold Egyptian consultations

The Argentine president of the UN Security Council urged all parties in the crisis in Egypt to exercise "maximum restraint" Thursday, following an emergency meeting in New York.

Argentine Ambassador Maria Cristina Perceval said that the Council's 15 member states had "deplored the loss" of life in Cairo and called for an end to the violence and to advance "national reconciliation."
