Five Lebanese citizens have been detained on suspicion of spying for Israel, raising the number of suspects captured this week to six, Hizbullah's Al-Manar TV reported Saturday.
Lebanese security and military officials contacted by The Associated Press refused to confirm or deny the Lebanese terrorist group's report.
Al-Manar said that two former policemen were among those detained, though it did not say when the arrests took place.
Lebanon considers itself to be in a state of war with Israel and bans
any contact with Israeli citizens. Lebanese authorities have arrested
more than 50 people suspected of collaborating with Israel, under a
crackdown that began last year.
All have been accused of providing Israel with intelligence on Hizbullah.
