Iran sentences 13 for spying for Israeli spy agency
An Iranian court has sentenced 13 people after finding them guilty of involvement in espionage activities for the Israeli intelligence agency, Mossad.
Branch 15 of Tehran's Revolution Court made the decision on Sunday, stating that they had been lured into spying for the Mossad by overseas-based satellite television networks and clever advertisement campaigns.
The defendants reportedly accepted large sums of money from Mossad and CIA agents.
The Iranian Intelligence Ministry announced on April 17 that it had arrested over a dozen Israeli-linked spies and terrorists.
The ministry said the detainees were of Iranian and non-Iranian nationalities.
