An American of Iranian descent has been sentenced to death by a court in Tehran for allegedly spying for the CIA.
Former Marine Amir Mirzai Hekmati was "sentenced to death for cooperating with a hostile nation, membership of the CIA and trying to implicate Iran in terrorism," semi-official Fars news agency said.
The 28-year-old's US-based family say he was in Iran visiting grandparents.
The sentence comes at a time of fresh tensions between Iran and the West over Tehran's nuclear program.
