A former Lebanese army general and Christian party member has been charged by a Lebanese military prosecutor with spying for Israel, according to a Reuters report.

According to the report, Fayez Karam was a member of the Free Patriotic Movement and was the first politician to be charged in a string of espionage cases in Lebanon.

Karam's charge sheet said he was accused of dealing with "the enemy's intelligence and meeting their officers abroad, and giving them information by phone" and providing information about the Free Patriotic Movement, Hizbullah and other groups to Israel.

He will face the death penalty if convicted.
