Iran says it arrested CIA spies and sentenced some to death

 

Iran says it has arrested 17 spies who it says were working for the CIA, and sentenced some of them to death.

The intelligence ministry said the suspects had been collecting information in the nuclear, military and other sectors.

US President Donald Trump has dismissed the Iranian allegations, saying they are "totally false".

Washington and Tehran are at loggerheads over Iran's nuclear programme and tensions have grown.

In recent weeks, the two countries came close to military conflict in the Gulf.
