A Gaza court extended the detention of a British journalist held in a jail in the Hamas-run Palestinian territory for another 15 days after military prosecutors said they needed more time to interrogate him, Palestinians officials said Monday.

The prosecutors refused to disclose what Paul Martin is accused of, but a Gaza-based human rights lawyer said he is being charged with spying for Israel.

Martin was arrested Feb. 14 in a Gaza military court, where he had intended to testify on behalf of a Palestinian terrorist accused of collaborating with the Jewish state.
