U.S. Deputy Secretary of State William J. Burns is visiting Cairo through Tuesday. He will meet with "interim government officials and civil society and business leaders." Civil society is a reference to nongovernmental groups and entities independent of government and business.
Burns will be emphasizing "an end to all violence, and a transition leading to an inclusive, democratically elected civilian government."
All of the latest developments come as Egyptian authorities launch an investigation of ousted Morsy as well as several leaders and supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood.
The state prosecutor opened the probe after receiving complaints against Morsy and FJP leaders, said Deputy Prosecutor General Adel al-Said.
Prosecutors also froze the assets of 14 people, including prominent Muslim Brotherhood figures, as they investigate violence in Cairo.
