Pope Benedict XVI at the Vatican

Egypt's Al-Azhar Universiry has suspended all links with the Vatican over what he described as repeated insults by Pope Benedict.

The Vatican say, it wanted to continue its dialogue with Al-Azhar.

Last week, Egypt recalled its Ambassador to the Vatican in reaction to Pope Benedict's call for the governments in Muslim dominated countries to do more to protect Christian minorities.
