JERUSALEM—Word received
here indicates that the number
of arrests in an alleged Israel
spy ring in Lebanon has risen
to nine, including a second
Jewish suspect.
. Previously, Lebanese authori-
ties had released the name of
Albert Levy, an attorney. The
new report also includes a sec-
ond Jew, Sami Salem.
In addition to charges of spy-
ing for Israel and spreading
rumors that the Lebanese and
Arab economies generally 'were
unstable, new charges contained
in the Arab press said they
were helping to smuggle Jews
out of Arab countries and of
seeking to isolate Lebanon from
other countries with the goal of
"making it into another Israel."
