    Israel envoy seeks talks with Egypt Islamist groups

    Israel's new ambassador in Cairo, Yaakov Amitai, will attempt to open communication channels with Islamic officials in Egypt, including representatives of the Muslim Brotherhood and the radical Salafi movement's Al-Nour Party. Nonetheless, the Muslim Brotherhood and the Salafi movement are expected to rule out any dialogue with the Israeli government or its emissaries. Meanwhile, Military police battled demonstrators in Cairo's Tahrir Square Sunday, the third day of clashes that have killed 10 people and injured hundreds, casting a shadow over the first free election most Egyptians can remember.
