Egypt refers nine to court over spying for Israel

Jun 26 2013, 10:24pm CDT | by

Cairo, June 27 (IANS) Egypt's public prosecutor referred nine people, including six foreigners, to the criminal court Wednesday for allegedly spying for Israel, a media report said.

Cairo, June 27 — Egypt's public prosecutor referred nine people, including six foreigners, to the criminal court Wednesday for allegedly spying for Israel, a media report said.

Talaat Abdullah ordered three Egyptians and six Israelis including four officers at the Israeli directorate of military intelligence to the court. But it wasn't clear whether all of them were in the country or on trial in absentia, Xinhua reported.

Investigations by security prosecutor revealed that three Egyptians, all residents of Rafah in North Sinai, had acted with the Israeli officers and two Israeli Arabs to spy on Egypt.

"The defendants have passed information to Israeli military intelligence services to harm Egypt's national security and the country's higher interests," the report said.

On June 15, Egypt detained a man for spying for Israeli Mossad. The prosecution said the defendant, an employee for a private company, realised earlier that his link to Mossad had been monitored, so he "confessed" to the Egyptian intelligence in early 2012, hoping that Egyptian authorities would drop charges against him.

Bible site restored – boasts World Heritage status

(Times of Israel) The Canaanites who lived in Hatzor during the biblical era were pretty smug. And for good reason: Not only was Hatzor a metropolis comparable in size to the biggest cities in powerful Babylonia and Egypt, but it also towered above the Via Maris – the main trade route utilized in ancient times. They had other reasons for complacency as well, for their military capabilities were formidable and their fortifications daunt ...
