CAIRO - At least two police vehicles were set a alight and demonstrators lit fires in the street outside the Israeli embassy in Cairo early on Saturday morning after they pulled down a wall protecting the building housing the mission, a witness said.

Police used teargas and fired in the air to try to disperse a crowd of about 2,000 people still outside the embassy in the early morning, the witness said.
