PA Arabs Nabbed in Egypt, Suspected of Spying
Seven Palestinian Authority Arabs have been arrested by Egypt security forces on suspicion of carrying out a military reconnaissance mission. It is not clear for whom they may have been spying.
The men were stopped at Cairo airport, and held after their arrival Wednesday from Syria and Iran.
All were found to be carrying fake passports, according to the source, as well as maps of “vital state facilities.”
