bus accident in Sinai last month (August 22) protested in front of the Egyptian embassy in Tel Aviv on Wednesday, September 13. Twelve Israelis were killed when their bus overturned, and more than fifty were injured. The protestors accused the Egyptian government of negligence in its response to the accident. They demanded that Egypt conduct another investigation into its handling of the disaster. The demonstrators expressed dissatisfaction with Egyptian security and rescue forces, and condemned the Egyptian government's refusal to allow Israeli rescue crews to reach the site. They also condemned a recent court verdict which punished the bus driver with only 12 months in prison. Police officers stationed there prevented two protestors from entering the embassy, Ha'aretz reported. All of the victims were Israeli Arab tourists visiting Sinai from Nazareth, Kafr Manda and Kafr Yasif.
The Egyptian embassy in Tel Aviv is located at Basel near Even Gvirol, one of the most expensive areas in the city. It is not guarded very heavily actually. The "police officers" stationed there, to whom the Ha'aretz article refers, are a couple of Magavnikim (Border Guard officers), usually looking very bored.
