CAIRO —

Egypt's liberal opposition leader has called for a broad national dialogue with the Islamist government, all political factions and the powerful military after the latest eruption of political violence left 60 dead over the past week.

Nobel Peace Prize winner Mohamed ElBaradei made the appeal on Wednesday, a day after the military warned the country could collapse under the weight of this turmoil.

President Mohammed Morsi, who was making a brief visit to Germany on Wednesday despite the crisis at home, has declared a state of emergency and night curfew in three restive provinces along the Suez Canal. But residents have defied the curfew since it took effect.

Morsi authorized governors of the three provinces to either cancel or limit curfew hours in an attempt to assuage public anger.
