ISRAEL-LEBANON
Israel detains Israeli Arab journalist for attending newspaper conference in Lebanon

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, April 17, 2014 6:35 AM EDT
JERUSALEM


Israel's Shin Bet intelligence service says it has detained a young Israeli Arab journalist for traveling to Lebanon, which Israel considers an enemy country.

Majd Kayyal, a 23-year-old journalist for the Lebanese newspaper As-Safir, traveled to Beirut last month for a conference.

Although Lebanon bars Israeli citizens from entering, the Shin Bet says Palestinian officials in the West Bank gave Kayyal Palestinian travel documents.

Kayyal was arrested last Saturday at the Israeli border on suspicion of being recruited by a militant organization. The Shin Bet says it dropped that suspicion, and is considering indicting him for traveling to Lebanon.

Kayyal has been held since his arrest without access to a lawyer. The Shin Bet says this is permitted in security cases.

Israel lifted a gag order on the arrest Thursday.
