An Egyptian court has ruled to extend the remand of alleged Mossad spy Ilan Grapel by 45 days, Egyptian daily Al Ahram reported on Wednesday.

The remand was extended despite an appeal by the US embassy in Cairo that Grapel be released. Egyptian prosecutors maintained that the investigation of Grapel was still pending and that he could not be released because he poses a flight risk.
