Obama's Egypt envoy: still risks but path opening

MUNICH, Feb 5 (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama’s special envoy to the Egyptian crisis said on Saturday there was still a risk of violence erupting but he saw early signs that Egypt was moving towards a peaceful resolution.

“There is a chance to move forward. It’s fragile, it’s the first stage, things could go wrong. But the direction is promising,” special envoy Frank Wisner told a security conference in Munich, via a video link from Washington.
