Cairo's 'Nakba' protest turns violent

At least 120 injured as pro-Palestinian protesters try to storm the Israeli embassy in Cairo.

    At least 120 people have been injured after Egyptian security forces fired tear gas and rubber coated steel bullets at pro-Palestinian protesters who tried to storm the Israeli embassy in Cairo.

    There have been widespread protests on the anniversary of what Palestinians call Nakba - the day Israel declared itself an independent state.
