Monrovia, Liberia -- Israeli and Togo security officials exchanged a few blows in the Liberian hotel where a meeting of African leaders is taking place after too many Togolese guards wanted to accompany Togo's president Faure Gnassingbé to a bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during his diplomatic trip to Africa.
A ruckus was heard in the hall, followed by a number of Israeli security guards who rushed out to help and see what the excitement was about.
The incident ended in seconds.
Togo is widely considered among Israel's best friends in Africa.
