A military prosecutor in Beirut is pushing for a Lebanese man who was found guilty of spying for Israel to be given the death sentence, Israel Radio reported Wednesday. According to the Israel Radio report, Lebanese prosecutors said he gave information to his Israeli handler by cell phone, as well as via a special device with which he was supplied. He was also accused of traveling to Israel to meet with intelligence agents several times. The prosecution said that Ali Hussein Mantish received thousands of dollars in return for the information.
