Iran arrests dual national over UK ‘spy links’

Iran has arrested a British-Iranian on suspicion of links to the UK intelligence service, the Tehran prosecutor tells Iranian media on Tuesday.

“The accused, who was arrested in Tehran last week, was active in the field of the Iranian economy, and was linked to the British espionage service,” the Mizan news agency quotes Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi as saying.

He does not give the name or gender of the accused.

Three other dual-nationals arrested over the past year — American, British and Canadian — are currently awaiting trial.
