An Algerian court sentenced a local journalist to 10 years in prison on Sunday morning after he was convicted of spying for Israel, Army Radio reported. The man, Said Sanun, was accused of passing information to the Mossad regarding a local terror group affiliated with al-Qaida. Two weeks ago, an Egyptian court convicted nuclear engineer Muhammad Siad Sabbar-Ali, 35, on similar charges and sentenced him to life in prison. Sabbar-Ali was accused of passing documents stolen from the Egyptian nuclear agency to the Mossad in exchange for $17,000. Israel has denied any connection to the affair.
