TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — A news agency in Iran says a group of suspected Israeli spies have gone on trial in the country's southeast.
Judge Dadkhoda Salari was quoted Saturday by the semiofficial Mehr news agency as saying that the group was led by three people who hired some 60 others to conspire against Iran's ruling Islamic government.
Salari was quoted as saying many of those charged confessed during interrogation. He said they acted against Iran's security, collected information and transferred it outside the country and assisted anti-religious establishments in Israel. He didn't provide further details, nor said when they were tried or if they were sentenced to prison.
Iran periodically announces the arrest of suspects charged with espionage or attempts to sabotage its nuclear facilities. It normally does not release further details.
