In Iran, a man has been sentenced to death for spying for US intelligence abroad. Amir Rahimpour has tried to share information about his country’s nuclear program with the CIA, a spokesman for the Iranian judiciary said today, according to the Fars news agency. He had „received a lot of money“.

The Supreme Court reportedly upheld the death sentence, which will soon be enforced. Two charities workers were sentenced to several years in prison on similar charges, the spokesman said.
