An Egyptian man accused of spying for Israel has been sentenced to 25 years in jail by a special court in Egypt's capital, Cairo, officials say.

Judicial sources say Tarek Abdel Razek and two Israeli officers, sentenced in absentia, were found guilty of "acts of espionage" on Israel's behalf.

The two Israelis who worked for Tel Aviv's intelligence agency Mossad also received a 25-year sentence.

Razek, who runs an import-export company, is said to have provided the two men with information on Egyptians, Syrians and Lebanese working in telecommunications and recruited likely agents for Mossad. He was arrested last year.

Relations between Israel and Egypt have been tense since a popular revolution swept former dictator president Hosni Mubarak from power in February.

Under the US-backed Mubarak regime, Egypt consistently served Tel Aviv's interests in the region.
