The trial of said detainees is underway and the prosecutor isn't going easy on the charges:
"These attacks were planned by representatives of this foreign country that wants to spread its influence on the Arab and Muslim worlds. And Hezbollah is nothing but a tool used to carry out its wicked goals," prosecutor Amr Farouk told the emergency state security court.That makes this as much a trial on Iran's activities (as the hand behind Hezbollah) as a trial of the accused.
"We demand the maximum punishment on the traitors."
The prosecutor called for death sentences for six of the defendants, charged with terrorism and espionage-related offences, a judicial source said.
Expect diplomatic sparks to fly as this trial resumes in February.
