Canberra, Australia • Australia's foreign minister said Thursday his government was notified through Australian security channels of the arrest of an Australia-Israeli citizen in Israel in 2010 on serious security charges months before the man died in prison.

Israel admitted for the first time Wednesday that it held the Australia-born dual Israeli citizen under a false name for security reasons and that he died in prison more than two years ago — details that shed new light on a case that has strained relations with its ally Australia and raised questions about its secretive Mossad agency. The admission left unanswered major questions, including the man's identity, why he was incarcerated and whether he worked for Mossad.
