A laptop computer containing classified military information was
apparently stolen from the commander of an elite Israel Defense Forces
unit while he was on vacation, Israel Radio reported Wednesday

The lieutenant colonel, who was on a field trip with his soldiers at
the time of the apparent theft, said he left his computer at his desk
in his office. However, an officer who was on-call at the time the
computer was stolen says it was not in the office.

According to military protocol, a laptop computer containing
classified material must be kept locked in the base's vault.

The commander was sentenced to two weeks in a military prison.  
Military police are investigating the circumstances that led to the
disappearance of the computer.
