Israel apologizes after diplomat uses Singapore flag as tablecloth


SINGAPORE: Israel said Thursday it has apologized for the “deplorable behavior” of a junior diplomat at its embassy in the city-state who allegedly used a Singapore flag as a table cloth during a party. Local media said Singapore’s foreign ministry had summoned the Israeli ambassador after a police report was filed about the incident on Sunday and the identity of the diplomat was revealed. Neither the Israeli and Singapore statements gave details of the incident, but local media said it referred to the Singapore flag being used as a tablecloth during a party hosted by the diplomat at his condominium in Singapore.
