Egyptian security forces clash with protesters

Help

Protesters have broken into the building housing Israel's embassy in Egypt's capital, Cairo, entering consular offices, officials said.

Police used tear gas and gunshots were heard nearby.

There have been protests outside the embassy since the deaths on 18 August of five Egyptian policemen, allegedly at the hands of Israeli forces.

The BBC's Hamada Abuqammar was on the scene as security forces clashes with protesters.
