“Saudi Ambassador to Cairo Ahmed Abdel Aziz al-Qattan filed a complaint on Thursday with Attorney General Abdel Meguid Mahmoud, demanding he begin an investigation into the attack on the Saudi Embassy in Giza on Friday.

In his complaint, Qattan said the embassy building, which is located on Ahmed Nasim Street in front of the Giza Security Directorate, was attacked by a number of thugs. He added that a number of Saudi diplomatic mission vehicles were set on fire and that an attempt was made to demolish the wall surrounding the embassy.
