Lebanon sentences 3 to death for spying for Israel

A Lebanese military court has convicted three men of spying for Israel and sentenced them to death.
Lebanon and Israel technically remain at war, and more than 100 people in Lebanon have been arrested since last year on suspicion of collaborating with the Jewish state.
One of those convicted Tuesday was found guilty of giving sensitive information to Israel, repeatedly entering an enemy state and training there to use telecommunications and photography equipment to spy.
The ruling said Jawdat al-Hakim collaborated with Israel for a decade, until his arrest in May 2009.
The two other men were tried in absentia and convicted on similar charges.
The rulings can be appealed.
