The Foreign Ministry denied on Sunday reports from Uruguay that the Latin American nation was investigating an Israeli embassy employee on suspicion of involvement in a fake bomb planting incident, adding that "these reports are incorrect and completely denied."

The ministry added that "in recent months a number of security related events have occurred near the Israeli embassy in Uruguay, which require careful review and significant security attention. However, the reported investigation is not true at all."
