Egypt commandos save Israelis from embassy raid: officials

10 September 2011 No Comment

Egyptian commandos plucked six Israelis to safety from their Cairo embassy as protesters stormed the building and dumped diplomatic papers from a balcony, an Israeli official said on Saturday.

‘Six people were actually trapped in the embassy and there was a real concern for their lives,’ the official told AFP on condition of anonymity. ‘In the end they were successfully rescued by Egyptian commandos.’

Egypt declared a state of high alert after police clashed with protesters who raided a building housing the Israeli embassy, prompting Washington to call for protection of the mission.

During the violence, in which one person died of a heart attack and 448 people were injured, according to state television, protesters torched police trucks and attacked regional police headquarters.
