Israel strengthens the security measures to protect the Egyptian embassy in Tel Aviv, Al Jazeera reported.

Egyptian protesters on Friday stormed a flat affiliated with the Israeli embassy in Cairo, witnesses said, dpa reported.

The apartment, used to store archive material, is on the 18th floor of the building where the embassy occupies the 20th and 21st floors. Demonstrators dumped papers out of the window.

Hundreds of protesters gathered in front of the building housing the embassy, breaking down a concrete wall meant to protect the building.

Protesters used large wooden poles and hammers to knock down the barrier. Others danced, sang and carried Egyptian flags.

Shortly after the wall was toppled, one of the protesters climbed the building and pulled down the Israeli flag for the second time in less than a month.
