Egypt’s interim vice president, the Nobel laureate Mohamed ElBaradei, resigned from his post following violent clashes with protesters supporting ousted President Mohamed Morsi, saying there was a peaceful solution. The White House has condemned the violence, as did Secretary of State John Kerry, calling the events "deplorable." At least 278 people have been killed in clashes between pro-Morsi protesters and the security forces that stormed their encampments. At least one journalist has been killed, and several others injured—such as The Daily Beast’s Mike Giglio, who wrote about his experience here.
