French President Francois Hollande conveyed France's great concern over the deadly violence by summoning the Egyptian ambassador, AFP reported in a statement. Also, Egypt's rulers have been urged to quickly end a month-long state of emergency attributed to the crackdown.

French President said, "France is committed to finding a political solution and calls for elections to be held as soon as possible, in line with the commitments made by Egypt's transitional authorities"
