      Husam Taleb Yaqoub, 24, is charged in Cyprus with Hizbullah membership, in addition to spying on Israeli installations in Cyprus in advance of carrying out a terrorist attack. He claims he was sent to locate Kosher restaurants in Cyprus, and was also sent to Amsterdam and Greece, that attract Jewish tourists.
