FILE - In this Monday, Jan. 28, 2013 file photo, former director of the U.N.'s nuclear agency and Nobel peace laureate Mohamed ElBaradei speaks during a news conference following the meeting of the National Salvation Front, Egypt’s main opposition coalition, in Cairo. Newly called parliamentary elections hold out little hope for plucking the country out of the turmoil and if anything, are likely to just fuel unrest and push it toward economic collapse. The call for the elections triggered a sharp reaction from the country's reform leader, ElBaradei, who said they would be a “recipe for disaster” given the polarization and the eroding state authority. On Saturday, he dropped a bombshell, calling for a boycott of the vote. (AP Photo/Amr Nabil, File)
