Egypt's Unrest Triggers Reaction in Region

Egypt's escalating tension between the interim government and supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsi is having an impact in neighboring countries and beyond.

A bomb exploded outside of the Egyptian consulate in Libya's eastern city of Benghazi on Saturday. The blast damaged the building's outer wall and nearby vehicles.

Investigators say there was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.

Meanwhile, Islamists and other demonstrators have staged rallies elsewhere in the region to protest against the Egyptian government's crackdown on civilians.

Several thousand Arabs in Israel waved Egyptian flags and pictures of Mr. Morsi on Saturday as they marched thorough the northern city of Nazareth.

Hundreds of people gathered outside of the Egyptian embassy in Tunis on Friday where they denounced the crackdown.

Thousands of people rallied in Ankara and Istanbul, Turkey, in a show of solidarity with Egypt's protesters.

Also, large groups of Muslims rallying in Indonesia and Malaysia urged the Egyptian government to refrain from using force on protesters.
