Egypt Closes Baghdad Diplomatic Mission
CAIRO, Egypt - Egypt will temporarily shut its diplomatic mission in Iraq and has recalled its staff to Cairo, an official said Thursday, after a militant group claimed to have killed Egypt's top envoy in Baghdad.

The announcement came hours after President Hosni Mubarak condemned the killing of the country's top envoy to Baghdad at the hands of Islamic militants.

Egypt also asked the U.N. Security Council on Thursday to urgently address the issue of protecting diplomats in Iraq following the killing of Ihab al-Sherif.

Egypt's U.N. Ambassador Maged Abdelaziz said he met with Greece's U.N. Ambassador Adamantios Vassilakis, the current council president, to request that the council try to find "ways and means to improve the life and protection of diplomatic missions ... in Iraq."

1. How about
improving the "life and protection" of Iraqis first?! They and our soldiers are the ones on the front lines of this ridiculous "war on terra."
