Israel charges Iran spy suspect
25-May-2008 (one comment)

An Iranian-born Israeli has been arrested and charged by the Israeli authorities with spying for Iran, police say.

The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, allegedly confessed to passing information to Iranian agents in Turkey while in Istanbul in 2006.

Charges were pressed behind closed doors and no other details were given.

Last year, Israel's Shin Bet security agency said it had foiled an Iranian plot to recruit Israelis as spies.

Earlier this year, an Israeli army psychiatrist, David Shamir, received a five-year prison sentence for attempting to make contact with foreign powers including Iran, with a view to selling them classified defence information.
