ElBaradei arrives in Vienna

Former Egyptian Vice President ElBaradei arrived in Vienna following his resignation on Wednesday
VIENNA (AA) - Former Egyptian Vice President Mohamed ElBaradei, who left his post to protest Wednesday's violent dispersal of sit-ins staged by supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsi, arrived in Vienna late on Sunday.

Serving as the Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) between 1997-2009 in Vienna, ElBaradei left Schwechat Airport for his house he bought during the mentioned period, in central Vienna.

No information has been provided on the length of his stay and ElBaradei refused to issue any comments or speak to reporters.

On Wednesday, ElBaradei tendered his resignation hours after security forces moved in to violently disperse two sit-ins staged by Morsi supporters in Cairo's Rabaa al-Adawiya Square and Giza's Nahda Square. The crackdown left hundreds of demonstrators dead and thousands injured.
