Israeli ambassador found naked, drunk on city street
By Michael Rowland
Israel has recalled its ambassador to El Salvador after he was found on the streets of the capital drunk and naked apart from bondage gear.
Police in San Salvador found Tzuriel Refael in a street near the Israeli embassy.
He was drunk, his hands were bound and he was only able to identify himself after a rubber ball was removed from his mouth.
An Israeli Foreign Ministry official has described the ambassador's behaviour as an unprecedented embarrassment.
He has been recalled to Israel immediately.
San Salvador was Mr Refael's first posting as ambassador, after he was promoted last year from a technical position in the Foreign Ministry.
The scandal has led to renewed criticism over the way Israel selects its diplomats.

Why is Craigslist — one of the most popular Internet sites, where you can find everything — so successful? “Today” national correspondent Jamie Gangel went to its headquarters in San Francisco to find out.
Craigslist began 11 years ago as a community service, not a business. It is now estimated to be worth hundreds of millions, if not billions of dollars. So we wondered, who was the genius behind the list? Not what you might expect.
Let's face it ... there's nothing fancy about Craigslist. But 10 million people a month say they can't live without it.
