Report: Iran Arrests Alleged MI6 Spy Working for Britain in Iran
Iranian security officials say they have arrested an MI6 spy in southeastern Iran’s Kerman province, the semi-official ISNA news agency reported Saturday.
“The spy was arrested after several months of complex intelligence activities,” ISNA quoted the head of Kerman’s revolutionary court, Dadkhoda Salari, as saying.
The accused spy visited with British intelligence officers 11 times both in and outside Iran and has confessed to his crimes, Salari reportedly told ISNA. The MI6 is Britain’s foreign intelligence agency.
