An Iranian man accused of spying for Israel has been given a death sentence.

Iranian news services reported the death sentence on Sunday. Iran’s Supreme Court must still approve the verdict, according to reports.

Tehran’s chief prosecutor, Abbas Jafari Dowlatabadi, said that more such espionage cases are under investigation, the Associated Press reported.

In 2008, Iran executed an electronics salesman after he was convicted of transferring information to Israel. Ten Iranian Jews were convicted of spying for Israel in 2000, but were released from prison early following international pressure.
