Cairo's Israeli embassy attacked

Help

At least three people have been killed and more than 1,000 injured during violent clashes in Cairo as protesters attacked the Israeli embassy.

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

Protesters smashed through a security wall around the building before a group of about 30 broke in and threw documents out of windows.
