Egypt's Vice-President Mohamed ElBaradei on Saturday strongly condemned the "excessive use of force" in Egypt via Twitter, following deadly clashes between loyalists of toppled president Mohamed Morsi and security forces.

"I am working hard and in every direction to end the confrontation peacefully," he said.

Scores of Morsi supporters were killed early Saturday in the deadliest violence since his ouster on July 3, after mass nationwide rallies were staged on Friday both in opposition to and support of Morsi's overthrow by the army.

The prominent liberal leader Mohamed ElBaradei, 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 eviction of Morsi's cabinet.

El Baradie is part of problem not solution
Mohammed el Baradie is part of the problem not the solution. He supported a military coup against the will of the Egyptian electorate. He should be tried for the crimes against humanity committed by the Army, the Police and the supporters of the military coup.

overthrow!!
Do you really define what happened in Egypt as "overthrow"? it can be both revolution and overthrow, I think that you're taking the pro-Morsi side without looking at the other side, there were 29 million in the streets!!! why didn't you refer to that in this article? it's also interesting that you didn't mention that they were armed! I am against killing, but i can't take their side unless they are not armed.

Elbaardei
Elbaradei is nothing more than a puppet of the West and the Western backed military leaders in Cairo. This is all for show. This military coup was supported by the West. Had it been the other way around and Muslims conducted the coup, there would be no debate whether to call it a coup or a military intervention. The Egyptian people in general and Arabs in particular are all pawns in large game, which the outcome is not clear yet, but soon my friends we will know the truth who the real power behind this charade is.

I hope egyptian people are smarter then this
Pro military people gather to give military blank check to kill opposition. Great democracy Egyptians - the democracy of protests and military coups -and suppression of political supports. I hope egyptian people realize how they are being manipulated by three stooges and military. Good work mr baradei maybe you should resign in protest nope you just want power. I wish I could curse.

Baradei the one to blame
I hold this guy responsible he brought in the military wanted power And on his watch hundreds died. The revolution is in a new phase the military is the problem. No democratic govt can exist unless the military respects rule of law. Sisi and baradei have blood on their hands.

Do something about this
You are the so called "vice president", DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS! You are now in a position of power. Instead of condemning the excessive use of force, STOP the army and police. Don't play political games and prove to the world that you and Adly are the puppets of Sisi. Hope this gets published. Seems like the Egyptian media are Sisi's puppets as well!!!
