"Nobel peace prize winner Mohamed ElBaradei's decision to quit the race for the presidency was seen in Egypt as a slap in the face for military rulers and one depriving liberals of a key force. The ex-UN nuclear watchdog chief made the surprise announcement on Saturday, days before Egypt is set to celebrate the first anniversary of the January 25 revolution that ousted president Hosni Mubarak."
