Israeli Writer

NPR's Eric Weiner in Jerusalem reports Israeli military authorities are questioning a scholar about a book he wrote on Israel's nuclear weapons program. Avner Cohen's book Israel and the Bomb was published three years ago in the United States after Israeli censors refused to allow its publication in Israel. Cohen, back in Israel on a visit, could face prosecution for violating the country's Military Secrets Act.
