Life in the Israeli diplomatic corp is one long party:
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.
What next? A revitalised Ariel Sharon whipping Ehud Olmert?
