Egyptians attack Israeli embassy 09 09 2011

A wall has been constructed around Israel's embassy in Cairo after it became the site of violent demonstrations in recent weeks.
Work on the wall began several days ago.
Egyptian officials said the 2 and a half meter high wall was erected to protect the residents of the high rise embassy building but not the Israel Embassy.
Officials said it was to protect the lower floors of the building and prevent tensions between protesters and residents.
A diplomatic row erupted between Jerusalem and Cairo last month after five Egyptian security personnel were shot dead on the border with Israel by Israeli soldiers pursuing the terrorists who killed 8 Israelis near Eilat.

Egypt at the time threatened to withdraw its ambassador from Tel Aviv and some called to end the 1979 peace treaty with Israel.
