Family rejects Syria 'spy confession'

Relatives of Iyad Youssef Enam, accused of helping Israel kill Hezbollah figure, insist he is innocent.


    The family of a man accused by the Syrian government of being a spy for Mossad, Israel's intelligence agency, has insisted he was forced into a false confession.

    Last week, Syrian state TV broadcast footage of Iyad Youssef Enam apparently confessing to helping Mossad assassinate Imad Mughniyeh, a military leader of Hezbollah, in Damascus in 2008.

    Al Jazeera's Omar Al Saleh reports from Al Bagaa, a Palestinian refugee camp in Amman, the Jordanian capital, where Enam's family say they are certain that he is innocent of the allegation.
