      Missile Protection for Civilian Aircraft?


      Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will convene a meeting of the diplomacy-security cabinet, Sunday evening, to discuss a 10-million-shekel program to protect civilian aircraft from missiles, according to Voice of Israel government radio.

      The program was developed following the launching of shoulder-mounted missiles at an Arkia Airlines jet during a deadly raid on a resort in Mombasa, Kenya frequented by Israelis.
