EGYPT: Embassy in Venezuela briefly taken over by protesters
The protesters entered the embassy peacefully under the pretext of collecting documents, Chavez said, according to news reports. They reportedly left after speaking with Venezuelan Foreign Minister Nicolas Maduro.
“They wanted to protest, of course, but they shouldn’t have done that because we are obliged to protect all of the embassies, which are sovereign territory,” Chavez said on state television.
