Egypt: Vice President ElBaradei resigns to protest raids

CAIRO

ElBaradei submitted his resignation Wednesday in a letter to interim President Adly Mansour. A copy was emailed to The Associated Press.

He says he is not prepared to be held responsible for a "single drop of blood" and warns that violence will breed more violence and the country is more polarized than it was when he took office.

El-Baradei was named Mansour's deputy for foreign relations last month.
