Germany charges 2 for espionage

2010-09-09 12:34
Berlin - German prosecutors say they have charged two Libyans with espionage for allegedly spying on exiled supporters of the north African country's opposition.

Federal prosecutors on Thursday identified the men only as 42-year-old Adel Ab and 46-year-old Adel Al.

They suspect that the younger man led a network of people gathering information on the Libyan opposition in Germany and western Europe. The older man allegedly was a member of that network.

Prosecutors charge that the two men spied in Germany from August 2007 until their arrest on May 13 this year.

The charges were filed September 1 at a Berlin court. It wasn't clear when a trial might open.
