ESPIONAGE

Va. Man Allegedly Spied for Syria

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s anti-protest tactics apparently weren’t limited to his own country. A Syrian-born U.S. citizen has been arrested on charges of spying on U.S. activists for the Syrian regime. Mohamad Soueid of Leesburg, Va., allegedly recorded anti-Assad rallies in the U.S. and sent the audio and video recordings to the Syrian government. The indictment also says Soueid traveled to Syria in June to meet with Assad personally.
