Calling for protesters to respect the rule of law, he urged the establishment of a committee of reconciliation as well as a charter of ethics for the media, and said he was prepared to meet all groups and individuals as part of a national dialogue process.'Terrorists and fools'

The army has given a deadline of about 16:30 local time (14:30 GMT) on Wednesday for the crisis to be dealt with.
