Also, in 1956, during the Algeria Independence war, the French authorities diverted a plane carrying several FLN leaders, including the future Algerian president, Ahmed Ben Bella, to Algiers; they remained in jail until the Algerian independence in March 1962.

The Lavon affair ("Esek Habish" - the shameful affair) was one of the most bizarre chapters in Israeli history.  In 1954, the Israeli secret service set up a spy ring in Egypt, with the purpose of blowing up US and British targets. The operation was code-named "Susanah."
