AFP reports that Vanunu has been put under house arrest:
Mordechai Vanunu, who was freed in April after 18 years in an Israeli prison for revealing the country's nuclear ambitions, has been placed under house arrest after being detained on suspicion of giving secret information to foreigners, a judicial source said.
The former Israeli nuclear technician, 50, was taken into custody at an east Jerusalem hotel on Thursday, where police seized documents found in his room, police said.
The judicial source said he was released from custody in the evening and placed under house arrest for seven days at his east Jerusalem home.
He has been banned from talking to the media and from announcing the exact nature of the charges against him.
Police confiscated documents from his room and information from computers.
