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.

pity Egytian prosecutors!
for allegedly spying for Israel and attempting to incite sectarian strife in the country during the 18-day revolt against ousted president Hosni Mubarak. Pitiful people, these Egyptian prosecutors. Do they really believe it the accusations they put on Grapel? We still remember how 'Israel' and 'its spies' were accused of stoking up the flames and starting the revolution against Mubarak, now they are accused of just the opposite.
