Police Seek Indictment of 10 Israeli Arabs Spring for Lebanon

Police investigators were reported today to be preparing an indictment against 10 Israeli Arabs, including a 22-year-old woman, who were arrested last week on espionage charges.

The ten Arabs live in a small village near the Lebanese border and the girl was reported to be the head of a group involved in the alleged espionage. Most members of the group, including two brothers-in-law and other relatives, belong to the girl’s family. They were accused of collecting information for Lebanese intelligence.
