The trial of an Israeli agent involved in a bungled Mossad operation was slated to open in Switzerland. The agent, who is charged with espionage, was among five Mossad operatives who were caught red-handed in February 1998 while attempting to bug an apartment near the Swiss capital of Bern. The apartment belonged to a businessman with suspected links to the Islamic fundamentalist group Hezbollah.
