Daniel Sharon, the Israeli arrested in Lebanon on suspicion of involvement in murder and spying, does not appear to be involved in espionage, a Lebanese security official said Monday.
Sharon, 32, who holds German and Israeli citizenship, was arrested on Thursday on tips from security and judicial authorities over his frequent visits to Lebanon using his German passport.
Israelis are not allowed to visit Lebanon because the two countries are technically at war, and authorities turned Sharon over to military police for interrogation.
But the security official said interrogations have not shown that he was involved in security work or spying. He said the investigation was still underway.
