Syria says jailed blogger worked for CIA

Post by Strawberry on Sat Feb 19, 2011 12:31 am

Syrian government says that blogger Tal al-Mallouhi was sentenced to five years in jail for spying for the CIA

Tal al-Mallouhi, a young Syrian blogger sentenced on Monday to five years in jail for passing on secrets to a foreign country, worked for the US spy agency CIA, the foreign ministry said Thursday.

In October, Syria's Al-Watan newspaper reported that Mallouhi, a 19-year-old high school student, was being accused of spying for the US embassy in Egypt.

The charge was denied by Washington, which on Saturday called for her "immediate release" and condemned what it called her "secret trial."
