Letter: Luxor massacre

Sir: As a Muslim, may I add my condemnation to the many that have been voiced about the slaughter in Egypt on Monday. There can be no excuse for it.

However, this, sadly, might continue to be the case so long as channels for the peaceful expression of political views are denied by the Egyptian government. It is time for all friends of Egypt to start to use their influence with the Egyptian government to widen the franchise of democracy to include all peaceful "Islamic" and other groups.
