Israel spat erupts at African Union summit

ISRAEL accused arch-foe Iran of orchestrating the expulsion of a top diplomat from the African Union (AU) summit today, with the help of Algeria and South Africa. 

The incident occurred on the first day of the summit, where leaders are discussing a slew of challenges facing the continent, including a record drought in the Horn of Africa and deadly violence in the Sahel region and the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
