Numbers of those killed and injured during the protests at the Israeli embassy last night reached 1,049 injured and three dead, announced the health ministry.

Those injured were taken to different hospitals around Cairo.

Friday night, some protesters managed to access a floor in the apartment building where the Israeli embassy offices are housed. Reportedly, the Israeli embassy keeps some of their archives on that floor.

Other protesters managed to lower the Israeli flag.

The Giza police station next to the Israeli embassy was set on fire. Several police vehicles were also set on fire.

Fierce clashes between protesters and police forces that were rushed to the scene resulted in the huge number of injuries and the three deaths.

Protest vs. Riot
It seems that many journalists are unable to distinguish between protests and riots. What exactly were the "protesters" protesting? This seems like a classic case of antisemitic hatred turning into a riot.
