Egyptian Nobel laureate ElBaradei in house arrest

CAIRO — Egyptian security officials say Nobel Peace laureate Mohamed ElBaradei under house arrest.
Tens of thousands of anti-government protesters poured into the streets of Egypt  Friday, stoning and confronting police who fired back with rubber bullets and tear gas in the most violent and chaotic scenes yet in the challenge to President Hosni Mubarak's 30-year rule.
Groups of thousands of protesters, some chanting "out, out, out," gathered at different venues across Cairo, a city of about 18 million people, some marching toward major squares and across scenic Nile bridges. Security officials said there were protests in at least 11 of the country's 28 provinces.
