The Israeli flag was raised on the embassy in Cairo Monday after a man climbed 21 stories to remove it a little over a week ago, Israel Radio reported.

Egyptian protesters had been staging non-stop demonstrations outside the Israeli embassy following the deaths of five Egyptian security officers in Sinai, and had called for the severing of relations between the countries, and the abandonment of the Camp David Accords.

According to semi-official Egyptian newspaper Al-Ahram, Egyptian police had put back security barriers around the embassy Sunday, after activists had torn them down at the outset of demonstrations.
