Jewish festival cancelled in Egypt

A Jewish festival, which has been held in a small Egyptian village for decades ,has been cancelled by the authorities in Cairo due to "security concerns".

Many in Israel believe the move reflects a growing anti-Israeli mood in Egypt.

The festival in which pilgrims from Israel and beyond visit the tomb of a mystic Moroccan rabbi has long been met with resistance.
