FILE - In this Nov. 27, 1996 file photo, American Evan C. Hunzik, right, shakes hands with then-U.S. Rep. Bill Richardson, D-N.M., upon their arrival at Yokota Air Base, outskirts of Tokyo, following his release from North Korea after negotiations involving Richardson. Hunziker entered the North by swimming across the Yalu River, which marks the border with China. Hunziker, who apparently made the swim on a drunken dare, was accused of spying and detained for three months. South Korean border guards arrested an American man who they believe was attempting to swim across the border into rival North Korea, a South Korean defense official said Wednesday, Sept. 17, 2014. The man was arrested Tuesday night at a river near the Korean Demilitarized Zone, part of a restricted military area, said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity due to office policy.

Hamas views collaborators in Gaza as a serious threat, holding them responsible for the assassination by Israel over the years of dozens of its top political leaders and military commanders. Israel, on the other hand, has historically relied on collaborators in its war against Palestinian militants and Palestinian activism in general, using methods that vary from entrapment and blackmail to cash and perks. (AP Photo/Khalil Hamra, File)GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — The 48-year-old Palestinian woman's husband was shot to death in 2012 by militants in the Gaza Strip for spying for Israel.
