ElBaradei accuses Egyptian govt of "scare tactics"

LONDON, Feb 2 (Reuters) - Opposition figure Mohamed ElBaradei accused the Egyptian government of “scare tactics” after clashes in Cairo between opponents and supporters of President Hosni Mubarak.

“I‘m extremely concerned, I mean this is yet another symptom, or another indication, of a criminal regime using criminal acts,” ElBaradei told BBC radio, when asked about the clashes.

“My fear is that it will turn into a bloodbath,” he added, calling the pro-Mubarak demonstrators a “bunch of thugs”. (Reporting by Avril Ormsby; editing by Keith Weir)
