An Israeli has been arrested in Yemen for spying for the Zionist intelligence agency, Mossad.
Yemeni media reported that the man, in his 30s, was reportedly arrested in the southern province of Taiz several weeks ago, after being accused of working for Mossad and setting up an espionage network in the country.
The man arrested goes by two names– Abdullah Muhsan al-Himi al-Siari and Abraham al-Deri, Reuters quoted official sources as saying. The agency added that he had contacts with Israeli security agencies and communications were found on his laptop. He was transferred to a prison to the port city of Aden this week before his trial. No date has been set.
