CAIRO Feb 2 Egyptian opposition figure Mohamed
ElBaradei called on Wednesday on the army to intervene to
protect Egyptians, after clashes between pro- and
anti-government protesters in Cairo's Tahrir Square, Al Jazeera
"I ask the army to intervene to protect Egyptian lives," the
station quoted him as saying, adding he said it should intervene
"today" and not remain neutral.
It cited him saying he had proof those attacking
anti-government protesters were police. Egypt's Interior
Ministry earlier denied accusations by anti-government
protesters that plain clothes police were involved.
