Iran has hanged a man found guilty of working as a "spy" for Israeli intelligence service Mossad, state media say. Espionage is punishable by death under Iranian law.

AFP - Iran hanged on Tuesday a man found guilty of working as a "spy" for Israeli intelligence service Mossad, state news agency IRNA reported quoting the Tehran prosecutor's office.
             
Ali Akbar Siadat was hanged on Tuesday in Tehran's Evin prison after having been condemned to death for "working for Mossad," IRNA reported, quoting the prosecutor's office.
             
Siadat was found guilty of having had links with Mossad for six years, IRNA reported.
             
"He had received 60,000 dollars to give classified information to the Zionist regime," IRNA reported.
             
IRNA said Siadat had acknowledged of establishing contacts with one Israeli embassy overseas and that he was transferring information of Iranian military bases to the "enemy."
             
He was also giving information "about missiles belonging to the Revolutionary Guards." IRNA said three years ago Siadat had received a computer and other equipment for his work.
             
Siadat used to meet his contacts from the Israeli intelligence service in Turkey, Thailand and Netherlands in different hotels, IRNA said.
             
He was arrested two years ago with his wife while trying to leave Iran, the report added.
