Report: Embassy Staff Returns to Cairo


Four members of the staff of Israel's embassy in Cairo have returned to the embassy, after being forced to escape when rioters trashed the embassy and nearly lynched some members of the staff. Egyptian sources said that the embassy's Consul General and an assistant had arrived in Cairo Monday afternoon, and were set to go to the embassy.

The embassy is still in a shambles. Israel is said to be seeking a new, more secure location for the embassy.
