A trainee spy for Israel's secret service agency Mossad was arrested by Tel Aviv police while taking part in a training operation, media reports say.
The young trainee was spotted by a female passer-by as he planted a fake bomb under a vehicle in the city.
The authorities have refused to comment on the story although Israeli media outlets have expressed their surprise.
Are they sure it was fake? And is this an admission that Mossad is still planting car bombs, seeing as this act was apparently part of a training exercise?
