Israel envoy leaves Egypt, diplomat says not summoned

Nov. 14, 2012 11:02 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 14, 2012 11:02 P.M.)
CAIRO (Reuters) -- Israel's ambassador left Egypt after President Mohamed Mursi announced he was summoning him to discuss the Israeli attacks in Gaza and would recall Egypt's ambassador from Israel, an airport source said on Wednesday.

"The Israeli ambassador to Egypt left suddenly along with his embassy staff... after Egypt summoned its ambassador in Tel Aviv following the Israeli assault on Gaza enclave," the source said.

However an Israeli diplomat in Jerusalem said the ambassador had not been recalled.

Ambassador Yaakov Amitai had come to Israel before Israel launched the assault on Gaza, the diplomat told Reuters. However, the embassy in Cairo was functioning as normal, he added.
