The Foreign Ministry is contacting authorities in Egypt to check if they do in fact have an Israeli citizen in custody and if so, to learn his identity, Army Radio reported.

Egyptian media reported on Sunday that an Israeli citizen named as Ilan Chaim Grabel was being detained on suspicion of "spying on Egypt with the aim of harming its economic and political interests," the MENA news agency reported.
