CAIRO, August 14 (Itar-Tass) - Egypt’s Vice President Mohamed Elbaradei has resigned amid violence that has swept the country.
“There were peaceful solutions to settle this political crisis. I am resigning because it is hard for me to assume responsibility for decisions with which I disagree,” Elbaradei said on Wednesday, August 14.
According to the Egyptian Health Ministry, 149 people have been killed and more than 1,400 injured as a result of mass riots in the country.
