    Gleb Grozovsky, a Russian priest wanted for suspected child sex abuse, has been held by Interpol in Israel, an Israeli police spokesman told RIA Novosti Monday.

    TEL-AVIV, September 22 (RIA Novost) – Gleb Grozovsky, a Russian priest wanted for suspected child sex abuse, has been held by Interpol in Israel, an Israeli police spokesman told RIA Novosti Monday.

    “Grozovsky was detained by our Interpol office,” the spokesman said without elaborating.

    Grozovsky, 34, is suspected of abusing two girls, aged nine and 12, in June 2013 at a hotel on the territory of the Philadelphia Orthodox travel club on the Greek island of Kos, as well as of committing “a range of similar crimes in St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region,” according to Russia’s Investigative Committee. Last year, he was put on an international wanted list on Russia’s request.
