Egyptian Opposition Leader ElBaradei Accepts Interim Prime Minister Role

Tyler Durden's picture

As the pro-Morsi Islamist coalition calls for widespread protests on Sunday against the military coup that just occurred in their nation, Al Jazeera is reporting that Mohamed ElBaradei (infamous for his strong stance against the US as UN nuclear watchdog amid the Iran WMD controversy) has accepted the role of interim Prime Minister. Following the last few days violence, where dozens have been killed post-coup, we suspect the Islamist coalition will be even more antagonized by this next step. Of course, realistically, until the US decides which side it wants to commit to, nothing will settle down in the re-couping nation.
