Egypt's interim Vice President Mohamed ElBaradei has expressed dissatisfaction with state newspapers' recent coverage of him.

"Apparently my work to prevent the nation from sliding into a circle of violence doesn't reach the state newspapers," ElBaradei said via Twitter.

"Only articles on my 'danger to the people and state' [are published by these newspapers]. We still have a long way to go," he added.

Al-Akhbar state-run newspaper published an opinion piece by veteran writer Gamal El-Ghitani on Tuesday calling ElBaradei "dangerous" for both the state and the people, accusing him of being "contradictory."
