A Canadian-Israeli geographer, Professor Razi Salakh, has been under arrest for the past 18 days on suspicion of spying on behalf of the Hizbullah, the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) announced on Wednesday.
The man does not live in Israel, but his family lives in the Nazareth area.
The Shin Bet and Galilee police apprehended the suspect as he was photographing military installations in the North.
The Acre Magistrate's Court extended his remand by four days and released the story for publication.
