    Saudi Arabia has decided to recall its ambassador to Cairo and close its diplomatic missions in Egypt after protests
    outside its embassy over an arrested Egyptian lawyer, state news agency SPA reported.
    An official spokesman, quoted by SPA, said on Saturday that the measures were decided in response to demonstrations outside its missions in Egypt and threats following the announcement of the arrest of the Egyptian lawyer in Saudi Arabia.

    The protests were "unjustified", the spokesman said, adding that Saudi and Egyptian employees of its diplomatic missions had been threatened.

    "Hostile slogans were shouted out and the immunity of the diplomatic representations was violated, contrary to all international regulations," the spokesman said.

    Hundreds of Egyptians have rallied outside the Saudi embassy this week to demand the release of Ahmed el-Gezawi, who was detained in Saudi Arabia for allegedly insulting the kingdom's monarch.

    Saudi authorities say the lawyer was arrested trying to smuggle anti-anxiety drugs into the kingdom.
