Relations between Egypt and Israel deteriorated further this week after an Egyptian attempt to link Israel to the actions of a new opposition group Black Bloc.
The Egyptian prosecutor general now says that a Black Bloc member was captured who was in the possession of an Israeli plan to sabotage fuel companies and vital sites.

Israel called the accusations utterly nonsense.

The Egyptian prosecutor general announced yesterday, the exposing of an Israeli plan aimed at sabotaging oil companies and vital sites in collaboration with a young man affiliated with the Black Block group, according to Al Sharq Al Awsat.

This comes two days after the PG’s decision to pursue members of the group, considering it a terrorist organization. The Prosecutor General said one Black Block member was caught inside a property that overlooks Tahreer Square in the possession of an Israeli plan targeting oil companies and vital sites, adding that the man had blueprints of these sites and instructions on how to start fires in some of them.

He said the young man, whose name has not been revealed, admitted to being a member of Black Block. (Al Ayyam). The Black Block group however, denied that one of its members had been captured in Egypt with an Israeli plan to sabotage fuel companies. On Facebook, Black Block released a statement saying that the person captured belonged to a political group not related to Black Block (http://qudsnet.com/arabic/news.php?maa=View&id=237108)
