Alleged Mossad spy Ilan Grapel underwent his eighth official interrogation session on Tuesday, speaking fluent Arabic without the use of an interpreter, Egyptian daily newspaper Al-Masri Al-Youm reported on Wednesday.

The report quoted an Egyptian judicial source as saying Grapel arrived in Egypt on January 28 and was constantly present in Cairo's Tahrir Square, especially during Friday demonstrations against former president Hosni Mubarak, who resigned on February 11.

Grapel told Egyptian airport officials that he was a reporter and stayed with other reporters at a downtown Cairo hotel overlooking Tahrir Square, Al-Masri Al-Youm reported.
