Iran executes man as Israeli spy

Iran has hanged a man convicted of spying for Israel and also executed another man who was a member of a government opposition group, state-run media reported Tuesday, quoted by CNN. The executions took place at Tehran’s Evin Prison at dawn Tuesday. Ali-Akbar Siadat was sentenced to death for working as a spy for Israeli intelligence. The Islamic Republic News Agency said Siadat admitted to transferring information to Israel over several years in exchange for USD 60,000. A second man was hanged for “fighting against the sacred Islamic Republic of Iran system and launching antagonist propagations.”
