Israel's Shin Bet security service on Sunday announced the arrest on 11 September of an Iranian "spy" carrying photographs of the US Embassy in Tel Aviv.

The suspect, holding a Belgian passport, was sent to Israel by Iran's elite Republican Guards and arrested at Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion International Airport, it charged in a statement.

The Shin Bet identified the suspect as Ali Mansouri, 58, and said he had enrolled in a "special operations unit of the Revolutionary Guards responsible for numerous terrorist attacks around the world."

It said he had been using the fake identity Alex Mans.
