Alleged Mossad spy Ilan Grapel, jailed in Egypt for nearly four months, will be released from custody on Tuesday, Israel Radio reported on Sunday, citing a report in the pan-Arabic daily Al-Hayat.

According to the report, Grapel, a dual US-Israeli citizen, will return to the US with US Defense Minister Leon Panetta who was scheduled to visit Egypt this week.

Al-Hayat reportedly quoted an Egyptian source as saying that Grapel was being released because it had been determined that he did not take part in espionage activities as had previously been alleged.
