Trial set to begin charging three Egyptians and five Mossad officers for spying for Israel

A trail is set to begin on Wednesday charging three Egyptians and five fugitive Mossad officers with spying for Israel.


The defendants are charged with damaging national security by passing information to a foreign entity, the Egyptian newspaper Al-Youm al-Sabaa reported on Sunday.


It is unclear if the trial is related to Egypt's claim in November last year of breaking up a Mossad spy ring.


Egyptian security forces reportedly broke up a Mossad spy ring operating in Cairo, arresting 17 people.

Three spy networks were operating in Cairo and several other Egyptian cities gathering security and military intelligence, especially from the Sinai, according to Egyptian sources cited in a report by the Kuwaiti newspaper al-Rai.
