Australia is to step up its investigation of a suspected Israeli spy ring following the imprisonment of two Mossad agents in New Zealand yesterday for
"One of the jailed spies, Eli Cara, 50, spent a significant amount of time in Australia and a house he used in Turramurra was raided shortly before
his arrest in Auckland in March. Australian authorities had been told two other men had slipped the net in New Zealand, but the house was deserted.
"It was quite clear that people had left in a fair hurry," a spokesman for the Attorney-General, Philip Ruddock, said last night. He said
investigations into suspected Mossad spies on Australian soil were continuing.
New Zealand's Prime Minister, Helen Clark, said she would reduce contact with Israel and slated it for its refusal to apologise or explain the
actions of the two jailed men. "

It'll be interesting to see what happens with this over the next few weeks.
