Yemen websites reported on Wednesday that an Israeli citizen, who has been using two names: an Arab one - Abdallah Muhsan al-Himi al-Siaghi, and a Jewish one – Abraham al-Deri, was arrested in Yemen. This comes after recent news that an Israeli was arrested after crossing illegally into Egypt.

Yemen news websites are reporting that Abraham al-Deri was arrested for working for the Israeli Mossad, setting up a spy network in the country. A news report at claims that he was arrested in the city of Ta’izz in southwestern Yemen and was transferred to the nearby city of Aden for questioning at Mansoura prison.
