Iran: Israeli spy executed
Iran has hanged an Iranian man convicted in June of spying for Israel, the ISNA news agency reported on Saturday. "The counter-espionage director of the intelligence ministry said Ali Ashtari, who had been sentenced to death for cooperation with the Zionist regime spying services, was hanged," ISNA said.
The agency did not say when the execution had taken place or offer any further detail.
Ashtari, 45, had been accused of involvement in a plot run by the Israeli secret services to intercept the communications of Iranian officials working in the military and its contested nuclear programme.
