Al-Manar said that two former policemen were among those detained, though it did not say when the arrests took place.

Lebanon considers itself to be in a state of war with Israel and bans any contact with Israeli citizens. Lebanese authorities have arrested more than 50 people suspected of collaborating with Israel, under a crackdown that began last year.

All have been accused of providing Israel with intelligence on Hizbullah.
