A US-man of Iranian descent has been sentenced to death in Iran for spying for America.

Twenty-eight year old Amir Mirza Hekmati is guilty of espionage for the CIA according to a court in Tehran.

The Iranian Ministry of Information also accused Hekmati of being trained by the US intelligence agency in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In a confession broadcast on state television in December, Hekmati admitted having links with the CIA, but his defence team said he had no intention of acting against Iran.
