Senior Lebanese official arrested for spying for Israel

A senior supervisor in Lebanon's general security service has been arrested, on suspicion of spying for Israel.

He was thought to have been gathering information on Hizbollah for Israel, and an unnamed European state.

He is said to have close contacts with Mossad, the Israeli spy agency.

The man works at Beirut Airport, and security forces started monitoring him after becoming suspicious.

He allegedly even tried to recruit his colleagues.

He is said to have photographed Hizbollah buildings and offices. And when police searched his house, they found maps of Hizbollah centers and buildings in the Dahiya neighborhood of Beirut, in the Bekaa Valley and in southern Lebanon.

Why don't they name him , Is he a minor or a victom of rape .

I think this was reported a while back in al Jazeera Sasa. Was he not in the payroll of the ehm ehm *Italians* cough.
