CAIRO - Egyptian security forces arrested a Palestinian man on Monday for taking photographs of military locations in Egypt and for illegally entering the country, a security source said.

Under Egyptian law, it is forbidden for anyone to take pictures of some state buildings, particularly military or police facilities.

"The Palestinian man confessed that he illegally crossed the border into Egypt and took pictures of important military spots," one security source said. The source did not say what the man had photographed.
