Israel embassy papers thrown from Cairo windows

CAIRO (Reuters) - Egyptian protesters threw documents belonging to the Israeli embassy in Cairo out of windows in the building housing the mission on Friday, Reuters witnesses said.

They said hundreds of documents flew from the building's windows in Giza, where demonstrators have destroyed a wall around the mission building. The witnesses said one of the documents was of an Israeli embassy request to the Egyptian Foreign Ministry to license a gun for an attache.
