The United States on Monday expressed concern over a new law in Egypt that restricts demonstrations and said it agrees with groups that argue the law does not meet international standards and hampers the country's move toward democracy. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement "We urge the interim government to respect individual rights and we urge that the new constitution protect such rights."
