GAZA CITY — A senior security official arrested in Egypt was falsely accused of posing a threat to Egyptian security, said to a Hamas spokesman in Gaza on Tuesday.

Mohammed Dababish, an official in Hamas' internal security unit, was arrested in Cairo this week in connection with an illegal shipment of walkie-talkies that Egypt said was to be smuggled to Gaza.

In Hamas' first reaction to the arrest, the spokesman denied that Dababish was involved in smuggling. He said the arrest was surprising because Dababish participated in talks meant to reconcile rival Palestinian factions a few months ago as an official guest in Egypt.
