More than two dozen suspected Hizbullah spies accused of plotting attacks for the Lebanese group have been brought to trial in Egypt. The 26 suspects are charged with spying for a foreign group, planning attacks against tourists and shipping in the Suez Canal and sending operatives to Gaza to help terrorist groups there. According to lawyers, the defendants pleaded not guilty in Monday's hearing at an Egyptian security court. The trial was adjourned until October 26.
