Iran has sentenced an American citizen to jail on alleged spying charges.

The judiciary said that it sentenced the suspect to ten years in jail for allegedly “infiltrating” the country and gathering information.

The identity of the American has not been revealed.

Judiciary spokesman Gholamhosein Mohseni Ejehi announced the sentence during a briefing to reporters Sunday.
