Security forces have detained a Palestinian with dual Canadian and Jordanian citizenship suspected of links with the Islamist group Hamas, an Israeli security official told Reuters on Monday.

The official, who could not be named, said Ibrahim Siam was detained on May 5 at the Allenby Bridge as he tried to cross into Jordan from the  West Bank.

Khalil Rezq, chairman of the Ramallah Chamber of Commerce told Reuters that Siam, an auto parts dealer, had attended a business conference in Ramallah and accused Israel of "putting obstacles in the way of businessmen wanting to visit Palestine."
