"Suspected Australian-Israeli spy Ben Zygier is believed to have been arrested by his employer on suspicions he had informed Australia's domestic intelligence agency of his work for Mossad, reports say.

The ABC says it understands Mr Zygier met Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) officers while visiting Australia, where he revealed details about several Mossad missions including a secret operation in Italy."

There's something they're hiding, by giving us these tid-bids.

Ahhh. The double-agent. Like Australia wouldn't have known that? His father is head of AUS B'nai B'rith.
