Israel on Sunday denied it had sent a team of spies to London ahead of the Olympics, after a leading British newspaper said that Mossad agents were in the city to hunt down groups alleged to be preparing an attack on athletes.

According to the report in The Sunday Times, Israel has upped its level of security around its Olympic delegation in the wake of Wednesday's deadly suicide attack at Bulgarian resort on the Black Sea which killed five Israeli tourists and their local driver.

The report said Israel had dispatched a team of agents from its notoriously brutal Mossad intelligence services to Europe to track down individuals planning to highlight the abuse of Palestinians by threatening the Israeli athletes.

But Amos Gilad, head of policy at Israel Defense Minister Ehud Barak's office, dismissed the report as fiction.

"Intelligence doesn't work like that, you don't suddenly send dozens of agents to chase phantoms," he told Israel's army radio.

"There has to be precise information and a rigorous collection of information," he said, describing it as "ant's work."

Israel has accused Iran and Lebanese resistance group of planning the Bulgaria attack, but has provided no evidence for the claims.

Tehran has denied the claims, and highlighted a series of attacks inside Iran believed to have been organized by Mossad.

Bulgarian officials, working with the CIA, FBI and Interpol, have yet to identify the suicide bomber behind Wednesday's attack.

Israel's 38-strong team of athletes arrived at the Olympic village in Stratford, east London, 12 days ago as Britain prepares to launch its biggest ever peacetime security operation.

Israel suppresses Palestinian sport, and earlier this year a Palestinian national footballer carried out a 92-day hunger strike to condemn the Jewish state's detention of him without trial.

Mahmoud Sarsak was released earlier this month after a campaign which included support from football's governing body FIFA condemning Israel's justice system.
