Egypt Protests 'Spirit of Shaked' to Ambassador

Egypt's Foreign Ministry Sunday summoned Israeli Ambassador Shalom Cohen and protested to him against the broadcasting of the film "Spirit of Shaked" on Israeli TV, in which a claim is made that an Israeli elite unite – Sayeret Shaked – killed 250 unarmed Egyptian captives in the course of the Six Day War of 1967.

Earlier Sunday, two Egyptian Members of Parliament called ambassador Cohen "a dog" and "an infidel" and demanded he be kicked out of Israel and into Egyptian territory.
