CAIRO - Egyptian security forces have detained an Israeli army officer in the Taba region of the Sinai peninsula after he snuck through a border crossing and took photographs of security property and talked to drivers, security sources said.

"The Israeli officer was arrested by national security forces on December 29. State security is now interrogating him," a national state security officer told Reuters.
