A senior state official on Sunday told Israel Radio that diplomats are looking for a new building to house the Israeli embassy in Cairo which was subject to an Egyptian mob siege on Friday night.

The official stressed the need to check if it was justified to leave the six security guards over the weekend who were tasked with protecting the Israeli embassy in Cairo, even though there was a warning issued that there would be attempts to break into the compound, Israel Radio reported.
