Lebanese authorities announced on Monday that they arrested a policeman accused of spying for Israel after obtaining information during the recent breakup of espionage rings across the country. The latest arrest was part of a stepped-up campaign against those suspected of gathering information on Hizbullah for Israel. A police statement said that the policeman was arrested April 29 at his home by agents who seized a computer and CD-ROMs. The statement said that the man claimed his wife, who remains at large, also worked for Israel's Mossad spy agency. There was no immediate comment from Israel. Lebanon considers itself at war with Israel. In April, authorities arrested six people, including a retired general, on spying allegations.
