Australian newspapers lead their front pages in Australia on February 14, 2013, with the story of Ben Zygier as Israel confirms it jailed a foreigner in solitary confinement on security grounds who later committed suicide, with Australia admitting it knew one of its citizens had been detained. The man, identified by Australian media as Mossad agent Ben Zygier, known as 'Prisoner X', died in a secret prison near Tel Aviv in 2010 in a case the Israeli government went to extreme lengths to cover up, imposing media gag orders. Tel Aviv broke its silence after the Australian Broadcasting Corporation said the man was a duel Australian-Israeli citizen and claimed he was a spy for Israel's intellegence agency.
