CAIRO (Reuters) - The head of Egypt's ruling military council contacted the Saudi government on Saturday over its "surprise decision" to withdraw its envoy to Cairo, the Egyptian state news agency reported.
Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi was working to "heal the rift" that had resulted from the decision. "The Field Marshal conducted contacts with the Saudi authorities to work to contain the situation," the state agency MENA said.
