A state security court sentenced an Egyptian nuclear engineer to life in prison Monday after convicting him of spying for Israel, a court official said. Mohammed Sayed Saber, 35, an employee with Egypt's atomic agency, had been charged with harming the country's national security by giving stolen documents to Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency, in exchange for US$17,000 (€12,500). Two others, one Japanese and one Irish, who were tried in absentia on spying charges also received life imprisonment, the court official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press.
