Iran says Swedish national arrested on spying charges

  Iran says Swedish national arrested on spying charges The arrest comes amid increasing tensions between Tehran and Stockholm. Iran has condemned Sweden for the arrest and trials of Hamid Nouri, an Iranian citizen who was sentenced to life in prison earlier this month. Nouri was convicted of murder during his time as assistant to the deputy prosecutor at the Gohardasht prison outside the Iranian city of Karaj in 1988. Tehran recalled its ambassador to Sweden last week for “consultations” but said it has no immediate plans to cut or reduce diplomatic ties.

Iranian authorities have reported the arrest of a Swedish national on charges of spying for Israel, Iranian state television reported.

The suspect was in contact inside Iran with "other European and non-European suspects" and had even traveled to Israel. He traveled to Iran to obtain information about the arrest of another European agent, according to this source.
