Iranian-American arrested on espionage charges

Tehran, Sep 1 (IANS) An Iranian-American national was arrested in Golestan province over spying and security charges, media reported on Thursday.

The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) identified the individual upon arrival in the country in July and arrested him later, Xinhua news agency reported, though it is not clear when he was actually arrested.

He was charged with cooperating with hostile countries, acting against national security, and having links with anti-revolutionary elements and media.

Last month, Iran reportedly arrested another person, also with dual citizenship, who was accused of being linked to Britain’s foreign intelligence service MI6.
