Israeli nuclear whistleblower Vanunu arrested again

[JURIST] Israeli police arrested nuclear whistle blower Mordechai Vanunu Thursday for allegedly revealing classified information. In April, Vanunu completed an 18-year prison sentence for leaking Israel's atomic weapons secrets. As part of the terms of his release, Vanunu was barred from meeting with foreigners and journalists and from discussing nuclear secrets. Vanunu has acknowledged violating the release arrangement, but said he had no more classified information to reveal. Israeli police have declined to discuss the nature of Vanunu's alleged disclosures. AP has more. The Jerusalem Post has local coverage.
