TEHRAN, IRAN — Iranian authorities have executed two men caught and convicted of spying on Israeli and U.S. spy agencies on Sunday.
CBS News reports Mohammad Heidari was convicted of providing Israel’s Mossad with classified information for monetary compensation. Kourosh Ahamdi who was also convicted of giving information to CIA intelligence on Iran, was also hung.
Accusations made by Tehran say that Israel and the U.S. were spying on nuclear interests which the West presumes were aimed at producing an atomic weapon. Tehran denies these claims.
