Israeli ambassador in Turkey Gabi Levy was pelted with eggs on Wednesday by Turkish university students, according to various reports. Turkish daily Hurriyet reported that during Levy's visit to the Black Sea Technical University, a group of students congregated around him, shouting slogans such as "Israel's child killers are not wanted in our universities" and hurling eggs into his van until university security personnel intervened. Several students were arrested, and the ambassador was forced to cut short his visit to the institution. The ambassador was slated to speak at the university during a tour of historic Turkish city of Trabzon.
