Dr. Ashraf Marwan, son-in-law of the late Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser.
Allegedly he was a double agent, working since 1969 for the Israeli Mossad. It is said that Dr. Marwan proved invaluable to the Israelis, over a number of years. But his identity was suddenly revealed by no other than Eli Zeira, Chief of Israeli Military Intelligence during the 1973 Yom Kippur War. He claimed that the Egyptian informant was in fact a double agent, who had acted as part of a carefully planned Egyptian ploy to deceive Israel.
In June 2007, Marwan fell to his death from the balcony of his London home.
