Professor Returns From Israeli Jail

Akron, OH - An Akron University professor accused of spying on Israeli militants is finally home and looking into what legal actions he could take against the Israeli Government.

Akron University geography professor Dr. Ghazi Falah was released from an Israeli jail last Sunday August July 30th, 2006.

Falah took pictures of military sites on the Israel-Lebanon border, but swears they were for academic research. Dr. Falah is known for his studies in the Lebanese and Palestinian history.

Falah was in Haifa visiting his sick mother who was set to go under surgery to remove a brain tumor on July 9th, 2006. Falah was detained on July 8th.
