Israel has indicted a former Israeli cabinet minister on suspicion of spying for Iran, Israel's Shin Bet internal security service said on Monday.

In a statement, the Shin Bet said Gonen Segev, who served as energy minister in the mid-1990s and had been living in Nigeria, "was recruited by Iranian intelligence and served as an agent". He was arrested during a visit to Equatorial Guinea in May and extradited to Israel, where he was indicted on Friday.
