ISTANBUL (AA) – Iran's judiciary on Tuesday sentenced a person to death for allegedly spying for the U.S.
Judiciary spokesman Gholam Hossein Esmaeili said the ruling was given for "wide-scale acts of espionage and cooperation with the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)."
He, however, did not disclose the name and nationality of the alleged spy.
The spokesman said another three Iranian men were sentenced to 10 years in prison each for "working for the U.S. and British intelligence services."
He noted that the four people were arrested last year.
