One official said the man, identified as Ali Abdul-Mohsen al-Himi al-Siaghi as well as Abraham al-Deri, had contacts with Israeli security agencies and communications were found on his laptop. He didn't elaborate.


The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to reporters.
