More unconfirmed data about the career of Mossad agent Ben Zygier, aka Ben Alon, who committed suicide in an Israeli cell, is offered by THEAGE Wednesday. This Australian news site adds a third name, Benjamin Burrows, to his aliases and claims that while studying for an MBA at Monash University in Melbourne in 2009 (a year before his death), he was seen often talking to Iranian and Saudi students. Australian intelligence is said to have known that he traveled to Iran, Syria and Lebanon. When challenged with this information by an Australian journalist in early 2010, Zygier is described as angrily denying he was a spy.
