Egypt's new security apparatus held meetings with Islamic thinkers to discuss the sectarian violence that erupted in the Imbaba neighborhood on Saturday.
The National Security Service, formed to replace the notorious State Security Investigation Bureau, held two meetings to discuss the violence, its repercussions on Egypt's transitional period, how to handle future violence and ways to address violence in the media.
Security sources said the meetings came in line with the service’s new policy of coordinating with different national forces.
The previous State Security Investigation Bureau was the body responsible for dealing with Islamic groups.
