An Israeli official on Monday said reports on Ilan Grapel working as a Mossad spy in Egypt have no basis in reality, Israel Radio reported.

Earlier Monday, Grapel's parents echoed the unidentified official's remarks, saying that the allegations over their son were "totally delusional."

On Sunday, Egyptian Judge Hesham Badawi of the supreme state security prosecution ordered Grapel to be detained for 15 days on suspicion of "spying on Egypt with the aim of harming its economic and political interests."
