Egypt: Elbaradei Says Revolution Incomplete Until Prosecution of 'Maspero' Perpetrators

Former Director of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Mohamed ElBaradei, said that not prosecuting those in charge of "Maspero" victims means that the revolution is not complete.

"May the martyrs of Maspero rest in peace. A revolution that did not prosecute those who killed its children is an incomplete revolution", said the Nobel Laureate and founder of the Dostour Party.

Violent confrontations between armed forces and Coptic Christian protesters took place last year on October 9, leading to the death of 25 Christian protesters by Egypt's Television and Radio building known as "Maspero".
