Egypt's Opposition Rejects Calls for National Dialogue

Egypt's opposition rejected a call by President Mohammed Morsi to hold a national dialogue, claiming the call was not a real proposal for compromise or change. 

The opposition announced it would agree to meet with government officials only if several conditions were met, the main one being that Morsi take personal responsibility for the bloody riots which occurred recently, which led to the deaths of 50 Egyptians.
