The European Union's foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton, has met Egypt's ousted President, Mohammed Morsi, her spokeswoman says.
Ashton visited Mr Morsi on Monday evening and held two hours of "in-depth" discussions with him.
The location of the meeting was not given, but Mr Morsi has been detained since he was overthrown by the military on July 3, after days of mass protests.
Baroness Ashton's visit comes after more than 70 Morsi supporters were killed in clashes with security forces.
