Swede who spied for Hizballah indicted at Israeli court

Hassan Khalil Hizran, 55, a Swedish citizen of Lebanese descent, was arrested last month at Ben Gurion Airport after a joint Shin Bet-Police investigation established he had been hired by the Hizballah terrorist organization in 2009 to recruit Palestinian Arabs and foreign nationals and pass military information from Israel. Sunday morning, the Central District Court indicted him on those counts.
