Iran Sentences U.S. Marine to Death

An Iranian court on Monday convicted an Iranian-American man of spying for the CIA and sentenced him to death, Iranian state news media reported Monday.

Amir Mirzaei Hekmati, 28, “has 20 days to appeal the court’s decision, which comes at a time of increasing tensions between Tehran and Washington,” the Washington Post’s Thomas Erdbrink reported Monday.

Hekmati, a former U.S. Marine Arabic language translator in Iraq, was born in Arizona and raised in Michigan. His family in Michigan, former colleagues and American government officials say Hekmati never served in the CIA and was in Iran to visit his grandmother. . .
