From New York Times , and

Egyptian protesters surrounded Israel's embassy in Cairo on Saturday, prompting Israel to deploy military jets to rescue their diplomats there. A clash between police and demonstrators ensued. The protests were in response to Israel's military killing five Egyptian policemen on the Gaza border last month, as Israeli forces pursued militants who had killed eight Israelis.

Ethan Bronner, Jerusalem bureau chief for The New York Times, and Noel King, a freelance reporter based in Cairo, talk about the implications of the embassy attack for the future of diplomatic relations between the two countries.
