Lebanese security officials on Friday said authorities have arrested three family members on suspicion of spying for Israel, the latest chapter in the long-running espionage war between the two countries. Security agents arrested the three people - a man, his wife and his brother - from their homes Friday in Ghaziyeh town, near the southern port city of Sidon. The officials said the arrests were based on information extracted from a retired Lebanese general charged with spying for Israel last month along with his wife and his nephew, who is a government security agent. Israeli officials refused to comment on the arrests.
