AP – The Palestinian engineer vanished from a Ukrainian train in the middle of the night. Now, the United Nations refugee agency confirms his wife’s fears that he is being held in prison by the Israeli secret service, most likely after being kidnapped nearly three weeks ago.

Dirar Abu Sisi, 42, went missing “under unknown circumstances” in the early hours of Feb. 19 after boarding a train in the eastern city of Kharkiv bound for the capital Kiev, according to Viktoria Kushnir, a spokeswoman for the Interior Ministry. He was in Ukraine applying for citizenship.
