Saudis nab vulture `spying` for Mossad
Jerusalem: Saudi authorities have nabbed a
vulture on suspicion of spying for Israel`s espionage agency
Mossad after it was found bearing a tag of Tel Aviv
University, local media reported.
The bird had strayed into the Saudi Arabian territory
and was found in a rural area wearing a transmitter and a leg
bracelet bearing the words "Tel Aviv University", Israeli
daily Ma`ariv reported.
The tag could indicate that the vulture was a part of
a long-term research project into migration patterns, but
residents and local reporters told Saudi Arabia`s Al-Weeam
newspaper that the matter seemed to be a "Zionist plot," the
The accusations went viral, with hundreds of posts on
Arabic-language websites and forums claiming that the
"Zionists" had trained these birds for espionage.
In a similar story, the Sinai regional Governor last
month suggested that a shark that killed and maimed tourists
on its Red Sea port may have been intentionally released by
Israeli agents in order to sabotage the country`s tourist
"What is being said about the Mossad throwing the
deadly shark in the sea to hit tourism in Egypt is not out of
the question. But it needs time to confirm," Mohamed Abdel
Fadil Shousha was then quoted by the British Sun newspaper as
