Lebanon arrests three people suspected of spying for Israel

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.
