Israel 'detonates spy devices in Lebanon'

The Israeli army on Friday allegedly detonated two of its espionage devices in southern Lebanon, slightly injuring two passers-by, a Lebanese army spokesman said.

Hizbollah said Israel had infiltrated the militant party's telecom network

"Around noon today, the Israeli enemy detonated two spying apparatuses by remote control in Wadi Qaysiyya outside of Majdal Selem" near the southern coastal city of Tyre, the spokesman told AFP.

Two labourers in the area suffered light injuries, he said.

The spokesman did not give details on the devices destroyed.

The incident came amid high tension in Lebanon over impending indictments by a UN-backed probe into the 2005 assassination of former prime minister Rafiq Hariri.

The Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) is allegedly set to implicate high-ranking members of the Shiite militant group Hizbollah in the killing, a move the party has repeatedly warned against.

Hizbollah has accused the STL of being part of a US-Israeli plot and said Israel had infiltrated the militant party's telecom network.

The STL has allegedly based its indictments on extensive telecommunications evidence.
