Egypt liberal sounds alarm over call for his death

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.
