Mohamed ElBaradei, the Nobel Prize-winning former United Nations bureaucrat, on Wednesday appealed to the Egyptian army to break with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and defend the protesters. "This is yet another symptom, or another indication, of a criminal regime using criminal acts," ElBaradei said, according to al-Jazeera. "My fear is that it will turn into a bloodbath."

Earlier this week, he scolded the United States for refusing to withdraw its support for Mubarak.
