JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia - Saudi Arabia's ambassador to Egypt will return to Cairo next week, a Saudi official said on Friday, after the envoy was recalled in a rare diplomatic row between the long-time allies.

The ambassador was withdrawn almost a week ago in response to street protests in Cairo against the arrest of an Egyptian lawyer in the Gulf kingdom.

Asked by text message to confirm Egyptian media reports that the Saudi king had ordered the ambassador to return to Cairo, a Saudi Foreign Ministry spokesman replied: "yes".
