Egypt's interim leader has promised fresh elections by early next year.

It's after 51 people, mostly supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi, were killed outside Cairo military barracks yesterday - prompting calls for restraint.

Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood have called for an "uprising," saying troops and police "massacred" its supporters during dawn prayers.
