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.
