French embassy says cooperating with Israel over smuggling investigation

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - The French embassy in Israel said on Monday it was cooperating with Israel on its arrest of a French consular staffer accused of using a diplomatic vehicle to smuggle guns between Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.

“We take very seriously this case ... and we work very closely with the Israeli authorities on this matter,” said an embassy spokesman, who declined to comment further on the allegations against the staffer, a French citizen.
