Israeli 'tried to spy for Iran'


A reserve officer in the Israeli army has been charged with offering to supply classified information to Iran, Russia and the Palestinian group Hamas.

David Shamir, a psychiatrist, is accused of offering information on command centres and civilian evacuation plans in exchange for payment.

Court documents indicate Mr Shamir's repeated alleged attempts to offer his services were unsuccessful.

Mr Shamir has not formally responded to the charges yet.

Police say he has cited greed as a motive......
