CAIRO - Egyptian military police arrested on Sunday another 92 persons involved in Friday's clashes outside the Israeli embassy.

According to the official news agency MENA, during the riots, 19 people set fire to several police vehicles and tried to break into the Giza security directorate near the Israeli embassy.

The general prosecution is investigating the whole event.

On Friday night, some Egyptian protestors broke into a building which houses the Israeli embassy in Cairo. They destroyed a newly- built concrete wall outside the embassy building and lowered the Israeli flag and threw documents out of the windows. Three died and 1,049 others were injured in the rampage.

Israel's ambassador to Egypt and most of the embassy staff were carried back home by an Israeli plane early Saturday.
