Lebanese colonel charged with spying for Israel
Lebanon's military court on Wednesday charged a colonel with spying for Israel, a judicial source said. "Judge Sakr Sakr charged Colonel Antoine Abu Jaoudeh with spying for the enemy, meeting with Israeli Mossad agents abroad and providing them with information on the resistance and army in exchange for money from 2006 until his arrest" earlier this month, the source told AFP.
More than 100 people have been arrested on suspicion of spying for Israel since April 2009, including members of the security forces and telecom employees.
Five Lebanese have been sentenced to death for spying for the Mossad so far, including two who were handed the death sentence Tuesday.
