Hezbollah agents arrested in Sinai...
Good for Egypt....
Egypt's attorney general has announced that 49 agents of Lebanon's militant Hezbollah group have been arrested on suspicion of carrying out hostile operations.
The government statement Wednesday said that the men were looking to
destabilize Egypt's general security.
According to the statement the men had been assigned by Hezbollah to observe and collect intelligence from the villages along the Egypt-Gaza border, tourist sites in the Sinai, and the Suez Canal.
They had also been provided explosives and training on how to use them.
"The public prosecutor received a note from state security about information confirmed by questioning about Hezbollah leaders sending some elements to the county to attract members to work with the organisation and persuade them to join its ranks ... with the aim of carrying out acts of aggression inside the country," the government statement said.
