Egypt asked the international police organization to arrest three Israelis it accuses of being part of a spy ring, a judicial official said Monday. Egypt's state security prosecutor on Saturday charged a 26-year-old Egyptian and three Israelis with spying for Israel and harming national interests. Authorities arrested Mohammed al-Attar, a former student at Al-Azhar University, on Jan. 1 after returning to Cairo from abroad. The three Israelis remain at large, and Egypt's prosecutor general has instructed the Interior Ministry to request Interpol to arrest them, said the judicial official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not allowed to speak to the media.
