Hizballah claims capture of defector-turned-Israeli spy

A Lebanese engineer who served with Hizballah until he was sacked for failing in religious observances relocated to Sierra Leone where he was recruited by the Israeli Mossad. According to the report carried by media associated with Hizballah, the defector, who had gone to ground in the large Lebanese expatriate community, agreed to return to Lebanon and work for the Mossad. He was detained in Naqoura, said the report, with equipment for coded communications and $17,000 in cash in his possession.
