Egyptian media: Israel ambassador fled home in fear of riots

Egypt's El Fagr newspaper reports that Israel's ambassador to Egypt, Yitzchak Levanon, has gone into hiding in fear of tomorrows demonstrations that might have been planned outside his home.

What the paper didn't mention was that there was a fatwa issued to kill every Israeli in Egypt, which might contribute to his fear if this is true.

Within the past week there has been a violent demonstration outside the Israel embassy, and the Muslim Brotherhood has demanded that Ambassador Levanon be expelled from Egypt.
