ElBaradei criticized the work of the Egyptian army after the departure of Mubarak

The Nobel Peace Prize and opposition Egyptian Mohamed ElBaradei on Wednesday criticized the army of his country by the way is leading the transition after the departure of Hosni Mubarak.

In this situation we are learning the way we have to organize to make a radical change from a brutal regime to a democracy," he said .

He also called the release "immediately" of all political prisoners in Egypt and expressed concern about the lack of independent media.

"Without a free media are no free elections," he said on Twitter.
