Egyptian Rioters Try to Rip Down Israeli Flag from Israeli Embassy in Cairo

On Friday 8th April, Egyptian rioters attempted to rip down the Israeli Flag from the Israeli Embassy in Cairo.

Although attempts to remove the flag are fairly commonplace, the sheer number of rioters took authorities by surprise. The rioters has marched from Tahrir Square to the location of the Israeli Embassy and had been burning Israeli Flags all the way along the route.

These scenes are the worst anti-Israeli protests since the protests that saw President Hosni Mubarak removed from power in February. The Foreign Minister, Yigor Palmor commented "They tried to reach the flag on top of the embassy but failed."
