Cairo: A Muslim cleric has issued a death fatwa against Egypt's pro-reform campaigner Mohammad Al Baradei allegedly for inciting sedition in the country.

"We in Egypt mostly embrace Islam, and anyone meditating statements made by Al Baradei will find out that they incite people to rebel against our Muslim ruler (President Hosni Mubarak)," added the fatwa attributed to Mahmoud Amer, a fundamentalist cleric in the Delta province of Al Beheira.

Since his return to Egypt last February after ending his job as chief of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Al Baradei has been spearheading a high-profile campaign for wider constitutional reforms.

Al Baradei, a potential challenger to Mubarak, had urged boycott of the recent legislative elections, which several opposition groups decided to quit in the second round for alleged massive vote fraud.
