Israel 'regrets' deaths of Egyptian policemen: Barak

JERUSALEM - Defence Minister Ehud Barak on Saturday said Israel "regrets" the deaths of Egyptian policemen killed on the border during an Israeli pursuit of militants who killed eight Israelis.

"Israel regrets the deaths of Egyptian policemen during the attacks on the Egyptian-Israeli border," Barak said about Thursday's assault by gunmen in the Eilat region of Israel.

The defence minister said he ordered the Israeli "army to open an investigation," in remarks that came hours after Egyptian state media said the Cairo government decided to recall its envoy from Tel Aviv to protest the killings
