Libya said it had cracked an Egyptian spy network that helped guide U.S. planes during last month's bombing of Tripoli and Benghazi. It said the Egyptian ringleader, Muraji Hamouda abu Azizah, was arrested and four U.S.-made radio transmitters seized. According to the Libyan government news agency, Abu Azizah crossed several times into Libya and at the end of March, delivered a transmitter to another agent, who gave him the equivalent of $7,350 plus a vehicle, rifles and ammunition.
