Egyptian witnesses told investigators that alleged Mossad spy Ilan Grapel raised their suspicions because he spoke fluent Arabic, participated in prayers and discussed with them "jihad" while urging them to continue in the revolt to "overthrow the oppressors," Egyptian newspaper Al-Ahram reported Sunday.

A high-ranking official in the Egyptian Prosecutor's Office told the newspaper that the US and Israeli embassies have not yet appointed Grapel an attorney.

According to the report, a lawyer from the Egyptian Bar Association was currently representing Grapel.
