Israeli Radio has confirmed that Israel will release 81 Egyptian detainees in exchange for alleged Israeli spy Ilan Grapel.
Ahram Online reported on Sunday that Israel was negotiating a prisoner swap with Egypt that would include Grapel.
Grapel, a dual US-Israeli national, has been detained since 12 June for allegedly spying for Israel and attempting to incite sectarian strife in the country during the 18-day revolt against ousted president Hosni Mubarak.
