Vice-President Mohamed ElBaradei announced on Sunday that he is determined to put an end to the bloodshed in Egypt.

"My top priority is to urge all factions to denounce violence in all of its forms to reach national consensus," added ElBaradei via Twitter.

The vice-president's statement comes one day following clashes between the police and Morsi supporters in Cairo's Nasr City, which left at least 72 of Morsi’s supporters dead and hundreds more injured.

On Saturday, ElBaradei also strongly condemned "excessive use of force" saying he is "working hard and in every direction to end the confrontation peacefully."

The former head of the nuclear watchdog IAEA and a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, was sworn in as interim Vice-President on 14 July following the Egyptian army's ousting of president Mohamed Morsi amidst mass protests earlier in the month.

Don't make us fool
People are noticing clear difference between democracy and dictatorship. Mr Elbaradei who came to presidency on Army tank, after losing (rather running away from) the elections now giving lessons,but you can fool the egyptains In 365 days of Morsi no opponent leaders were Jailed or Arrested, but military dictators (masters of ElBaradei) have arrested hundreds of opponents in just 3 week. - In 365 days of Morsi no body died in the protests against Morsi, but in military dictators killed hundreds of people in just 3 week. - In 365 days of Morsi no media channels were closed, Military dictators have closed 7 TV channels in just 7 days. - In 365 days of Morsi no office of opposition parties were burned but military dictators have burned all the office MB in just few days. - Morsi never called to get mandate for crushing opposition like Nazi military dictator is doing right now. These military dictators are the getting support from other dictators in the region who do not allow free speech, they imprison people for years for just criticizing them. Its time for egyptains to wake up again to get rid of these dictators and thieves.

Joking...?
"My top priority is to urge all factions to denounce violence in all of its forms to reach national consensus" When you got involved and let the army capture Mursi, I, an ordinary person unlike you, already knew such violence will occur....Couldn't you expect that? What did you think and expect when Sisi called for demonstrations, not the civilian government or political parties but the army? Where were you and what were you doing when so many were killed...? Now the president has given right PM to arrest the opponents. Egyptians are emotional, stubborn and have strong pride. Do you think they will be ready to be arrested...?

The movement to have Elbaradei stripped of his Nobel Prize is beginning in earnest. No European citizen will tolerate the blood soaked hands of ElBaradei to wear the honourable glove of Nobel Prize for Peace. Sisi, ElBaradie et al must prepare themselves for their day at the Hague for their crimes against humanity.
