Families seek retribution for Egypt deaths

Relatives mourn for policemen killed in Egypt-Israel border shooting as protests grow in Cairo.

    The father of an Egyptian policeman killed by Israeli forces in a border shooting incident says he wants retribution for his son's death.

    "My son was intentionally killed by bullets. We want retribution... It's a shame not just for me, but for Egypt," said Mohammed Ibrahim, the father of Taha Ibrahim.

    Egyptians took to the streets outside the Israeli embassy in Cairo to demand the expulsion of the country's  ambassador and the closure of the embassy.
