CAIRO - Egyptian liberal politician Mohamed ElBaradei condemned Egypt's Islamist-led authorities on Wednesday for not arresting a Muslim cleric who said he should be sentenced to death.

ElBaradei's response came the same day as an outspoken secular opponent of Tunisia's Islamist-led government was killed outside his home in what the country's prime minister condemned as a political assassination.

The "Arab Spring" revolts have brought emboldened Islamist parties to power after decades of repression, but have also exposed divisions between them and their secular opponents.
