Mohamed ElBaradei says “Egypt will explode”

11 February 2011, 6:48 AM
UNITED NATIONS - Reacting to Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s decision to remain in office, key opposition figure Mohamed ElBaradei warned on Thursday that Egypt will explode and needs to be rescued by the military.

“Egypt will explode. Army must save the country now,” the Nobel Peace Prize-winning former head of the U.N. nuclear watchdog said on Twitter.

ElBaradei, interviewed from Egypt by CNN, said: “People are very angry.” He added that it was up to the army to “save the country from going down the drain.”

“We should be quite worried,” he said. “They (Mubarak and Vice President Omar Suleiman) need to step aside. People have lost confidence in them.” Mubarak earlier announced that he was delegating powers to Suleiman.

ElBaradei said Mubarak had lost all legitimacy.

Referring to Mubarak’s passing of his powers to the vice president, ElBaradei said: “How can you be a president without any power?”
