Israeli diplomats in Cairo have spoken to the Egyptian prosecution and said that they will continue to work towards Grapel's release. The man Egypt suspects of espionage for Israel, made aliyah from the US in order to serve in the IDF and was wounded during the Second Lebanon War.
Earlier Tuesday, Egyptian daily Al Masri al-Yom wrote that Grapel had met with members of the Muslim Brotherhood and other radical factions in Egypt.
