Ariel Sharon’s security entourage inadvertently left the prime minister home alone Tuesday, leaving for the Knesset without him. The Israeli prime minister, who had stopped by his official residence in Jerusalem on his way back from his farm in the south of Israel, was left with only one personal bodyguard. It was only when his entourage reached the Knesset that they realized they had left Sharon behind, army radio reported. Security officials told the radio that had the incident taken place anywhere but the official residence, which is heavily fortified with security, a serious breach of security would have occurred.
