An Egyptian court sentenced a man and woman to long term prison sentences Monday after finding them guilty  of spying for Israel, according to AFP.

The man, Ramzy al-Shebini, was sentenced to life in prison, which in Egypt generally means 25 years.  The woman, Sahar Salama, received a 15 year prison term.

In documents attained by  AFP, the court accused the two of passing along to Israel "strategic information relating to the country's internal situation and information about the military's acquisition of German submarines," between 2008 and 2012.
