ElBaradei warns of Egypt poll chaos

Key Egyptian opposition figure Mohamed ElBaradei has urged President Mohammed Morsi not to go ahead with elections.

Mr ElBaradei said the elections risked bringing chaos and instability, and possibly military intervention.

On Saturday, Mr Morsi brought forward the start of the parliamentary elections to 22 April

Mr ElBaradei told the BBC's Jim Muir: "We need to send a message loud and clear to the people here and outside of Egypt that this is not a democracy".
