FILE - In this Aug. 4, 2015 file photo, the head of a Jewish extremist group Meir Ettinger appears in court in Nazareth Illit, Israel. Israel's prison service says Ettinger has been freed from jail after a 10-month detention on Wednesday, June 1, 2016. Ettinger was arrested last year following a deadly arson on a Palestinian West Bank home that killed three people, including a toddler. The 24-year-old Ettinger is the grandson of U.S.-born Rabbi Meir Kahane, Israel's most notorious Jewish extremist, whose ultranationalist party was banned from Israel's parliament for its racist views in 1988. (AP Photo/Ariel Schalit, File)JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel on Wednesday freed a Jewish extremist detained 10 months ago amid a security crackdown on extremists following an arson attack in which a Palestinian toddler was burned to death.

Egypt has become embroiled in a dispute with African diplomats after they accused an Egyptian official of referring to "dogs and slaves" in remarks about sub-Saharan Africa at a United Nations conference in Nairobi. The diplomats sent a formal complaint to Kenya's foreign ministry after the alleged remark at the U.N. Environmental Assembly last week, Yvonne Khamati, chairwoman of the African Diplomatic Corps Technical Committee, said on Tuesday. Egypt's foreign ministry said it had no evidence of any such remarks by a Cairo official and would investigate, adding that it rejected "flimsy accusations against the Egyptian state and people that cast doubt on its African identity." Khamati, a Kenyan diplomat who wrote the letter, said the remark was made following a disagreement on resolutions involving Gaza.
