Iran has sentenced two men to 10 years imprisonment for allegedly spying for foreign governments.

Massud Mossaheb was convicted of spying for Israeli and German intelligence over his senior role in the Austrian-Iranian Society, judiciary spokesman Gholamhossein Esmaili said.

The other man, Shahram Shirkhani, was accused of working for UK intelligence.

Five other Iranians have been arrested on charges of espionage in recent months, according to Mr Esmaili.

International rights organisations regularly raise issues about the justice system in Iran, with Human Rights Watch noting that the country “regularly fell short of providing fair trials and used confessions likely obtained under torture as evidence in court”.
