Israel gave Egypt a list of 81 Egyptian prisoners held in Israel to be released in exchange for Ilan Grapel, according to Egyptian newspaper Al-Youm Al-Sabe'a, Army Radio reported early Saturday morning.

US-Israeli dual national Grapel, 27, was arrested in Egypt on accusations he was a spy out to recruit agents and monitor events in the revolt that overthrew president Hosni Mubarak, an ally of both the United States and Israel.

Grapel has not faced trial yet.
