CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt's second largest Islamist party called on Wednesday for an end to political violence it said threatened to split society.

The Nour Party said it held the army-backed government responsible for bloodshed which killed at least 149 people on Wednesday after security forces moved against supporters of the deposed president, Mohamed Mursi.
