French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel plan to discuss the Egypt crisis in a telephone call at 1200 GMT Friday, a diplomatic source said.

Hollande warned Thursday of the threat of "civil war" in Egypt, after a crackdown by security forces on supporters of ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi left nearly 600 people dead.
