Two Egyptian presidential candidates decided on Wednesday to temporarily suspend their campaigns over clashes in central Cairo that left twelve people dead.
The Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Mursi told reporters he decided to suspend his campaign for 48 hours "in solidarity with the protesters."
His main Islamist rival, Abdel Moneim Abul Fotouh, cancelled all his events for the day over the clashes, a campaign official told Agence France Presse.
