Egyptian journalist Mona Eltahawy: "We have to stop the bloodshed"

On the heels of ongoing and violent unrest in Egypt, on Wednesday evening Piers Morgan invited journalist Mona Eltahawy to offer live perspective from Cairo.

"It's been a horrible day, Piers," said the Egyptian journalist and Arab affairs analyst. "I want to condemn unequivocally the mass killing by the security services and the church torchings that have happened across the country, and I'm speaking to you right now in a Cairo that's under curfew as many other provinces across the country are."

Joining "Piers Morgan Live" via telephone, on a day which saw nearly 300 Egyptian lives lost, Eltahawy had one critical message to share:

"I want to emphasize one thing, and this is really important. We have to stop the bloodshed," she pleaded. "The revolution was not launched in the name of an Islamic State, or a military state. Our revolution was launched in the name of freedom and social dignity and social justice. And we need wise heads to rise above this horrendous day and say 'let's sit down and talk and stop shooting at each other.'"

Watch the clip for the rest of Piers Morgan's interview with Eltahawy, and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.

    Why are we not hearing about the Christian churches and business being burned and destroyed? Why are we not hearing about the Christians that are being killed protecting their homes? Why isn't Obama addressing this as well as those of the Brotherhood being killed? We need all the facts not just one side.
    Thank you.

    BO is too busy sucking knish with Rahm and the swells in the Vineyard with Comcast.
    Let the Bruthahood in Cairo roast like the little piggies on the southside of Chicago.
    Just a little cleansing before the High Holidays.
