Deadly pens and exploding cigars? Amateur spy toys.
Israeli spies - according to a popular Iraqi newspaper - have put crocodile eggs into two lakes in northern Iraq.That ploy follows the release of "large quantities" of cobra snakes near Iraqi forces in the north, said Babil, a daily newspaper owned by Odai Hussein, President Saddam Hussein's oldest son.
Northern Iraq is under the control of Kurdish factions helped by a no-fly zone enforced by U.S. and allied warplanes.
The newspaper did not elaborate on the goal of the operation.
