The last two words? "Violence brings violence."
ElBaradei, an opposition figure during the 2011 uprising who subsequently ran for president, is seen as the voice of reason in a government established by the military in the aftermath of a coup that deposed Islamist President Mohamed Morsi on July 3.
Mohamed El-Beltagi, a Muslim Brotherhood leader, said his 17-year-old daughter had been killed in the clashes that occurred as the military aimed to take control of major pro-Morsi sit-ins.
The entire country is in violent turmoil as bodies were strewn all over Cairo today.
Earlier the army announced a state of emergency across the country, meaning that most cities will face a 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew for at least a month.
If you are keeping score: ElBaradei is gone. A point for the old order. #Egypt— Steven A. Cook (@stevenacook) August 14, 2013
Jon Williams of BBC notes that the country was "governed" under emergency law from 1967 to 2012, except for an 18-month break in 1980/81.
