EGYPT: ElBaradei warns 'Egypt will explode'
Mohamed ElBaradei, who has emerged as a leader of the opposition movement against President Hosni Mubarak, posted comments online within the last hour warning that the country has become volatile.
“Egypt will explode," ElBaradei, a Nobel Peace Prize winner and retired diplomat, posted on Twitter. "Army must save the country now."
In statements posted earlier in the day, ElBaradei vowed continued protests and complained of violence by Mubarak's government.
