Interview with Egyptian Politician ElBaradei 'This Was Not a Coup'

Nobel Peace Prize laureate and Egyptian politician Mohamed ElBaradei believes last week's military intervention in Egypt was necessary. In an interview with SPIEGEL he explains why and argues that deposed president Mohammed Morsi was bad for the country.
Mohamed ElBaradei is the former head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, for which he won the Nobel Peace Prize. He has been active in Egyptian politics since then.
