Nobel Prize winner Mohamed ElBaradei was backed as a spokesperson by the Muslim Brotherhood during the Egyptian revolution. They needed a moderate secular face to show the world. Now, the revolution is over and Islamists are throwing rocks at him.
CAIRO (AFP) – Hundreds of Islamists hurled stones at secular opposition figure Mohamed ElBaradei as he went to cast his ballot in a referendum in Egypt’s capital on Saturday, an AFP reporter said.
“We don’t want you,” they shouted, forcing the former UN nuclear watchdog chief to retreat to his car and leave, but not before being hit by at least one stone in the back and drenched with water.
