Hundreds of Egyptians gathered at the Israeli embassy in Cairo on Friday to protest the apparently accidental killing of five border police by an Israeli helicopter.
The incident, on Thursday, came as the helicopter was reportedly moving across the border in pursuit of armed men thought to be connected to an earlier attack inside southern Israel that killed eight people.
Egypt has withdrawn its ambassador and summoned his Israeli counterpart in Cairo in protest. The cabinet has demanded compensation for the policemen and an investigation into the incident.
